Sit on seat and position forefeet on lever platform. Grasp handles to sides and straighten knees.
Push lever by extending ankle as far as possible. Return by bending ankles until calves are stretched. Repeat.
Position seat to allow full range of motion. Reposition stance if feet slip. Keep knees straight throughout exercise or bend knees slightly only during stretch. Quadriceps serve as synergist muscle if knees are bent slightly during stretch. Also known as Rotary Calf Extension. See Calf Exercise Analyses.
