Start by getting under the shoulder pads and resting your arms on the arm bars.
Place your toes on the toe plate and push with your quads to get you into the starting poition.
Start each rep by pushing as high up on your toes as possible. When you have reached the top of the exercise, slowly lower your self so that your heals are lower than the plate.
Inhale on the way down and exhale as you push to the top of the exercise.
Calf cramps can be exceedingly painful, and everyone has experienced this pain at least once in their life.
The most agonizing pain comes at some point during your sleep, but painful cramp pain can also occur during
athletic training. They can instantly halt whatever it was you were doing.
What really goes on when a calf cramp comes on, which can take only a few seconds from painless to horribly painful? There are actually several causes of calf cramps.
Dehydration is one of them. This doesn't mean gasping for water as though you've been wandering in a 100-degree desert for days. You can be dehydrated and not even feel thirsty.
To prevent this, make a point of drinking six to eight glasses of water every day, whether or not you are thirsty for it. You don't have to drink a whole glass at once. You can sip throughout your waking moments. Lack of hydration can speed up the calf (and stomach) cramping process.
