Sled Reverse Donkey Calf Raise

Instructions

Preparation

Position lower back and hips under upper pad. Place forearms on supports. Position heels on forward edge of platform.

Execution

Pull forefoot up and toward body as far as possible. Return by extending feet until toes are pointed away from body. Repeat.

Comments

Often bending at the hip typically reduces range of motion at ankle during dorsal flexion. Two remedies include: (1) end knees slightly, (2) position torso more upright supported by extended arms, effectively reducing bend at hip as shown with Lever Reverse Donkey Calf Raise. In this last case, Triceps Brachii would act as stabilizer.
