It's a calf muscle workout where you can add loads using only barbells and benches even if you don't have a machine!

How to

Starting Position

Make sure your feet are securely in place and adjust the leg pad on your thighs to ensure your legs don't move during the exercise. 2. Your toes should be pointing forward and your knees slightly bent. 3. Grip the handles of the machine firmly with your hands.

Proper Form
