HOW: Sit in a chair with your feet comfortably on the ground. Keeping as much weight as your can (or were told to by your therapist) on your ankles, push through the balls of your feet to raise your heels off the ground. You can use your hands and upper body weight to make the exercise harder or put weights on your knees.
FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your calves working as your try to lit your heels off the ground.
COMPENSATION: Make sure to keep constant pressure/weight on your feet for proper resistance training.
