Alternating Hack Squat Calf Raises

This exercise works the gastocnemius or the larger muscle of the calf complex.

Implementation:  (A)  Normally you would stand face away from the hack squat machine, here you will stand face toward it.  Place you shoulders under the pads, and rap your arms around them as you would a bar on a front squat.  Stand straight up with your legs fully extended.  You will have both feet on the platform, not hanging off if it (B)  With both feet flat, raise your right leg up onto its toes while keeping your left leg still, now lower under control.  When your right foot returns, lift the weight with your left leg and alternate like so until your set is complete.
