One Legged Hack Squat Calf Raises

This isolates one calf at a time.  It mainly stresses the gastocnemius or the larger calf muscle.

Implementation:  (A)  Your body will be facing inward for this exercise, the opposite of how you would normally use the hack squat machine.  Position your shoulders so that they are under the pads of the machine.  Stand with the toes of one leg on the edge of the machine and the other leg behind you. Lower your heel as much as possible getting a full stretch, (B) then drive back up onto your toes. Finish your set, then do the same with the other leg. If one of your calves is lagging compared to the other, give it some extra sets to help achieve a balance.
