Adding length to the Calves and Shins to allow for flexibility and freedom of movement without strain or pain.
- Form & Placement:
Try to keep your foot as flat as you can to maximise the stretch into the calf.
Keep your body relaxed as you move around the stretch.
Don't overdo stretches by holding stretches too long, 40 seconds-1min. Listen to your body.
Remember everybody is a little different so experiment with the angle and direction of the stretch involved.
Maintaining a slow/calm 'Breath' is Important while stretching, as this allows oxygen to enter your muscles via blood cells. Don’t hold your breath as this can diminish the muscles development.
