Starting Position

  • one of you lays on the ground or a weight bench with the front side
  • if you use the weight bench, the knees protude the lower end of it
  • the workout partner now grasps one ankle

Correct Execution

  • now bend the leg slowly, the partner gives the resistance (choose the level of difficulty with the individual resistance)
  • the movement should last about 4 seconds
  • when the calf touches the thigh, the final position is reached
  • bring the calf back to the starting position with or without resistance
  • if you do it with your partners resistance, you also train the quadriceps
  • do this several times, then change sides and do the same number of reps

tips for the workout

  1. you can also train both legs at the same time, when the partner grasps both ankles
    • then maybe the resistance is not big enough
