The Calf Press on the Leg Press Machine is an exercise that primarily targets the calf muscles.
Watch the CALF PRESS ON THE LEG PRESS: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform CALF PRESS ON THE LEG PRESS:
1. Sit down at a leg press machine and place the balls of your feet at shoulder width on the platform in front of you.
2. You can use various foot placements to target different parts of your calf muscles, such as toe forward which equally targets the overall calf muscle, toes pointed out, which places more emphasis on the inner calf muscle, and toes pointed in, which places more emphasis on the outter calf muscle.
3. Press the platform away from you so your legs are fully extended without locking your knees.
4. Now press the platform away from you with the balls of your feet by extending your ankles and raising your heels and flexing your calf muscle.
5. Your knee should remain stationary and not bend during the calf press.
6. Pause during the contraction, then under control slowly lower the weight by bending your ankles, lowering your heels, and stretching the calf muscle.
