Progressions & Variations

Tips

Resist making this a bouncy movement. Instead control the movement throughout.

Be sure to squeeze the calves at the top of the movement.

Make sure to drop the heel as far as possible to achieve the greatest stretch.

Keep your legs straight throughout the movement.
