Gastrocnemius Stretch / Calf Stretch
We demonstrate a number of calf muscle stretches above. Stretching the calf muscles can help to prevent a whole range of lower limb injuries.
- Stand with one leg far in front of the other and lean forwards against a wall.
- Keep the back heel flat on the floor.
- Bend the front leg to lean forwards and keep the back leg straight.
- Hold for between 10 and 30 seconds.
