yep the corkscrew torque should be outwards like you describe (but no motion of course). Not sure if calves should feel flexed.

One of the key points is the idea that you can rebuild the musculature in your foot by engaging in natural barefoot exercises.

According to this thinking, orthotics are only a temporary solution, and can actually make things worse by not allowing the foot to develop its own self sufficient structure (although in extreme cases they can be necessary).
