Sit down on the calf machine and place your feet (toes only) onto the foot platform at the bottom. Your knees should be under the top brace pads fitting nice and snug. With your hands you can hold on to your seat or to the handle bars on top of the machine if they are available. This is your starting position.
Raise the weight up as high as you can by focusing on pushing your toes up and away from the platform. Once at the top, hold for a fraction of a second and then release the weight back down to the starting position.
Finally, repeat the entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.
