Where are the effort, fulcrum, and resistance in the act of dorsiflexion? What class of lever does the foot act as during dorsiflexion? Would you expect it to have a mechanical advantage greater or less than 1.01.0 ? Why?

When performing a dorsiflexion movement in the foot, then the foot acts as a first-class lever (EFR). The movement occurs in the talocrural joint where the toes approach the tibia.
