With a durable release arm and convenient handles, the Discovery™ Series Plate Loaded Line Calf Raise delivers a reliable workout experience. The plate load horn is angled for easier loading/unloading of weight and the thigh pad adjustment telescopes accommodate almost any user. The textured powder-coated footplate provides a highly durable and secure surface for users. The fall-away catch quickly releases when a user engages in the exercise. When the user has finished, they simply place the catch back in place and lower the carriage allowing for an easy exit and no sudden dropping of the weight. The seated design of this calf raise eliminates compression of the spine, providing a more effective and comfortable workout. The adjustable thigh pads allow users of all sizes to fit this unit to their needs.
