- Grasp dumbbell in one hand to side. Position heels on forward
edge of platform. Grasp support with other hand for balance.
- Pull forefoot of both feet up toward body as far as possible.
Return by extending feet until toes are pointed downward. Repeat.
- Keep knees and hips straight throughout exercise. The exercise
can be made more difficult by using only one
leg or positioning heels closer to edge of platform. If you
need to assist with hands used for support, use lighter load
(or no weight), or position
heels more on platform. See Dorsal
Flexor Calf Exercise Analyses.
