(Starting Position)

Before you begin, place a small platform in front of a bench with back support. You may also want to put a roll pad on your barbell for added comfort.

Sit down on the bench and rest the bar horizontally on top of your thighs.

Then, put your toes on the edge of the platform.

Keep your back straight and your knees bent at a 90-degree angle. This is the starting position.

(First Movement)

Exhale as you use your calves to raise your heels so that the bar is lifted as high as possible.

Tightly contract your calves at the end of the movement.

(Second Movement)

Hold the contraction for a moment, and then inhale as you slowly lower your heels back to the starting position.

Once your muscles feel fully stretched, repeat these movements until you have competed all of your reps.
