1. Place the device arms-length away from the wall or other supportive structure
2. Place both hands on wall - then place either foot onto the device with your heel snugly
into heel rest and toes on the front platform.
3. Stand straight up with all your weight on the device and lean slightly forward. Your other
foot, which is not on the device should come up off floor and may be pointed so that toes
touch the floor. This is important for balance and to keep hips level. Be sure to keep your
hips in a vertical position. Tilting the hips back (sticking buttocks backward) reduces the
effectiveness of the stretch. While leaning slightly forward, keep shoulders, hips and
ankle of foot on the device in line with each other.
4. Keep leg straight on the device and let your ankle pivot so your heel gently rocks back
until you feel a slight tension in the upper "gastroc" calf muscle stretcher.
