Sustained Calf Stretch

This stretches the calf muscles, in particular, the large gastrocnemius. First, wrap a resistance band or strap around your feet. Then, gently pull up so you feel a stretch in your calf muscles. Hold this for at least 1 minute, or better up to 2 minutes. This exercise applies a very gradual stretch, therefore, it is important not to push too hard too soon. Relax and feel your muscles very gradually stretching.
