EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Position a block under the Smith. Place your toes and the balls of your feet on the block, allowing your heels to ride slightly beyond the back.
  2. Drive up by pushing your big toe into the block. The goal is to push you up on your tiptoes, as high as you can, for a full calf contraction.
  3. Lower your heels slightly beyond parallel with the step, creating a stretch at the bottom of the rep.
