Standing Unilateral Calf Raise

Start: Position a sturdy low platform or a couple of phone books in front of the weight stack. Attach the stirrup handle to the low pulley, grab it with one hand, and place the ball of your corresponding foot squarely on the platform. Hold on to something with your free hand for balance as you lift your other foot and rest it behind the Achilles tendon of your working leg. Stand up straight, and lower your working heel as far as you can.
