- Find a comfortable position on a leg-press machine with your feet placed, flat, about shoulder width apart.
- Extend the resistance away from your body until your knees are at an almost locked position (never fully lock your knees).
- Further extend the platform away from your body, by driving your toes forward, into a tip-toe position.
- Hold this fully-extended position for 1 second, before lowering the platform to your extended-leg, flat-footed position.
