How to do it

Steps :

1.) Start by setting up either a step or a block next to either a support structure or smith machine.

2.) Place the balls of your feet on the edge of the block/step and let your heels drop down towards the floor as far as possible.

3.) Then slowly raise your heels up as high as possible, squeezing your calves and hold for a count.

4.) Return back to the starting position.

5.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
