- Position sled away from platform. Lie supine on sled with
shoulders against pad and place feet on platform. Grasp handles
to sides and straighten knees. Place toes and balls of feet on
lower portion of platform with heels and arches extending off.
- Push sled away from platform by extending ankles as far as
possible. Return by bending ankles until calves are stretched.
- If sled bottoms out on dock lever, disengage it to allow
full range of motion. Keep knees straight throughout exercise
or bend knees slightly only during stretch. Quadriceps serve
as synergist muscle if knees are bent slightly during stretch.
