Sit on seat with back on padded support. Place feet very high on platform, grasp handles to sides, and extend knees.
Pull forefoot back toward body as far as possible while pushing platform with heels. Return feet down to platform and repeat.
Feet may be moved up higher on platform if bottom of forefoot can still remain on platform with knees straight and back of hips can remain on back pad. The angle of back pad may be lowered back to keep back of hips on lower portion of back pad. Keep knees straight throughout exercise. See Dorsal Flexor Calf Exercise Analyses.
