Set your shoulders in the calf-raise machine as you normally would. Now place your feet back about a foot back from there (don't use a calf-raise block for this technique as the block may slip out) so your body is at an angle. You will look somewhat like a ski jumper when you are in this position.
Push up and forward into the calf raise from this position. This angle increases the tension in the stretch position and works the calves at a very unique angle not found in any other calf movements.
This technique is excellent for any sport requiring explosive forward movement Ezequiel Lavezzi Paris Saint-Germain Jersey , e.g. track, football, soccer, volleyball Edinson Cavani Paris Saint-Germain Jersey , etc., as the body position employed with this technique mimics that movement very closely.
It's also especially useful if you find you're running out of resistance on the calf machine you're using. Since you'll be pushing forward against the machine as well as the weight, the resistance will be greater.
Note: be sure your shoes have good grip and that you are not on a slippery surface when you use this technique. Your feet could slide out.
