Set up on the 45 degree leg press by placing your feet (toes only) lower down on the platform. Keep your toes pointed inward towards each other. Get ready to release the safety lever to begin your initial raise. This is your starting position.
Unhook the safety locking mechanism and press the weight up using only your toes and calves. Keep your legs straight and as rigid as possible to avoid exercising your quadriceps. Once at the top, lower the weight back down as far as you can and then repeat the entire exercise movement for the desired or prescribed number of repetitions.
Perform this exercise in a smooth and fluid motion
Don't keep your head up and looking at your feet as this may strain your neck muscles; rest your head comfortably on the back rest pad
