STRENGTH TRAINING MACHINE DRILL, MODIFIED EXERCISE 3A: SINGLE-LEG HEEL RAISE
This exercise (Figure 6-29) is performed much like the heel raise, using only one leg at a time. The range of motion and resistance is decreased for the injured leg. As the Soldier’s condition improves, the range of motion may gradually increase until the exercise is performed to standard. The resistance should not be increased until the Soldier can move through the full range of motion. The single leg is used to maintain a heavy resistance on the good leg and/or to reduce the resistance on the injured leg.
