A safer way would to be to sit in a chair and plant your feet so your heels are lined up with your backside, not your thighs. Lean forward a little to put some pressure on them. Your feet and ankles will still be in the hockey stance without stressing them too much. When they're nice and hot they are somewhat fragile. You don't want to be exerting that much force on them.
