Can anyone describe their effective routines to directly train the front muscles of the calves, the dorsi flexors? I couldn’t find anything useful in a forum search. I tried an Ian King routine where you do toe-ups under the roller of a leg curl machine – but I could never achieve a full stretch because the roller kept on rolling off my toes. I’ve also tried using cables and even putting a barbell on the toes but they didn’t exactly work out. Any proven ways you could recommend?
If I can’t find a way how to do this with existing gym equipment, I might have to buy the Dynamic Axial Resistance Device (any opinions on this one) which Poliquin recommends in the Principles book .
