- Position lower back and hips under upper pad. Place forearms
on supports. Position heels on forward edge of platform.
- Pull forefoot up and toward body as far as possible. Return
by extending feet until toes are pointed away from body. Repeat.
- Often bending at the hip typically reduces range of motion
at ankle during dorsal
flexion. Two remedies include: (1) end knees slightly, (2)
position torso more upright supported by extended arms, effectively
reducing bend at hip as shown with Lever
Reverse Donkey Calf Raise. In this last case, Triceps
Brachii would act as stabilizer. See Dorsal
Flexor Calf Exercise Analyses.
