The standing calf-raise

The lifter positions his shoulders under the padded bars and places the balls of his feet on the raised platform with toes pointing straight ahead. The lifter commences the lift with his heels touching the ground. He then raises them to their highest point of extension. The weights should clear the ground by two to three inches. The moment the lifter begins to apply pressure upward, his shoulders should fully support the weight.
