HOW: Begin by placing your feet about hip width apart on a leg press with your heels off the ledge. Push the balls of your feet away from you as far as you can then slowly return back to starting position.
FEEL: You will feel the calf muscles working with this exercise. You should feel a stretch in the calf when you are at the starting position.
COMPENSATION: Avoid allowing the knee to bend with this exercise, keep your knees straight for the entirety of this exercise. Do not let your ankle “roll out”. You should feel even pressure between the inside and outside of the balls of your foot.
