Soleus Stretch

This stretch targets the Soleus muscle which is deeper, underneath the larger Gastrocnemius. Bending the knee relaxes gastrocnemius, allowing Soleus to be stretched in isolation.

Teaching Points

  • Stand with one leg in front of the other close to a wall.
  • Place your hands on the wall for balance.
  • Bend both knees, focusing on the back knee.
  • Move your weight forwards onto your toes but make sure you keep the heel down at the back.
  • Hold for between 10 and 30 seconds.
