Place yourself in the leg press machine normally, as you would to perform leg presses. Position your feet either against the middle of the pressing surface, or at the bottom edge with your toes and the balls of your feet supporting the weight.

Press the weight up with your legs to get it into position, extending your legs and locking your knees. From this position, using only your calves to move the weight, press the sled away from your body until your calves are fully extended. Focus on contracting the calves as much as possible. Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position of the lift and repeat.
