45 DEGREE TOE RAISES

45 Degree Toe Raises

Alternate Name: -
START POSITIONEXECUTION
Set up on the leg press machine by placing your feet close together near the top of the platform (your toes should be slightly off the platform). Keep your back and head comfortably resting on the back rest pad and your legs straight and locked-out at the knees. Get ready to unhook the safety lever to begin your initial raise. This is your starting position.Release the safety and begin by pushing the weight with your heels. You will not be pushing as much as you will be simply raising your toes and the rest of your feet (except your heels) off the platform as much as you can. Once you raise your toes as high as you can, lower them back down to the original starting position.

Finally, repeat the entire movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.

DODON'T
  • Perform this exercise in a smooth and fluid motion
  • Keep your legs straight at all times; bending them at your knees will result in exercising your quadriceps and hamstrings
  • Don't load the leg press machine too heavy on your first set; always treat the first set as a warm-up set
SPECIAL NOTES & LEVEL of DIFFICULTY VARIATIONS
