If your weekly cardio consists of running or jogging, then you may have experienced tight calves. It’s also possible that you have a combination of tight hamstrings and calves.
Try a simple assisted wall stretch to release your calves.
The calf consists of two muscles:
- The gastrocnemius
- The soleus
This stretch works them both: the soleus of the front leg and the gastrocnemius of the back leg.
