What's a rotary calf machine?

Something else cool for calves, that Old School mentioned earlier in the week, is when doing seated raises to bring your body as close to the pad as you can, putting more stress onto your calves. MAN what a difference! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

It's hard to explain. Sort of like if you were doing calf presses on a leg press but you are sitting up. But it isn't plate loaded, it's a machine with a weight stack and a pin.

Oh, we have a leg press machine really similar to that, where you sit upright. You can place your toes low and just do calf raises. All the old men & all woman use that thing for legs - and nothing else [img]/forum/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

I found a pic



Th foot part rotates in an arc, hence rotary calf

Basically just what I was expecting. The foot plate on the machine we have is larger, to accomodate more of a leg press motion for those who don't want the 45 degree, plate-loaded machine.
