This is a great calf raise variation that is done on the Smith Machine or Shoulder Press Machine. It's not recommended with free weights due to balance issues and positioning requirements.

First, set a moderate weight on the machine - on the Smith, set the bar near the top - on the shoulder press machine, to use reasonable weight, you'll probably need to press it to the top position.

Stand in front of the machine and press the weight to the top position and lock out the elbows. Step your feet about a foot back so that your body is at a slight angle to vertical. The angle makes it similar to a ski jump position, but not as dramatic.

Now do a calf raise movement with your feet flat on the floor. The angle of your body provides the stretch on the calves. Holding the weight overhead really puts a different stress on the calves - it forces more stabilization. Go for as many reps as you can.
