1. Position yourself normally in a standing calf machine, but keep your whole foot on the platform.
  2. Shrug your traps up. Hold the top position for a full two-second count. This is important because the range of motion is short on this exercise.
  3. Keep your glutes and abs tight to protect the lower back.

A variety of set/rep ranges will work with this exercise.
