- Position shoulders under shoulder pads with back against
back pad. Place feet on platform shoulder width apart. Extend
hips and knees. Position toes and balls of feet on nearest edge
of platform with arches and heels extending off.
- Raise heels by extending ankles as high as possible. Lower
heels by bending ankles until calves are stretched. Repeat.
- Keep knees straight throughout exercise or bend knees slightly
only during stretch. Quadriceps serve as synergists muscle if
knees are bent slightly during stretch.
