Repost from @hartrehab using @RepostRegramApp - CALVES SORE? WHICH STRETCH
[Calf Stetching 101]
Hey everyone! Here is a very quick demo @jessrehab and myself put together the other day for stretching out those tight calves following a workout. .
Our "calves" are actually made up of a number of muscles in the back side of our leg so we have to know how to be able to bias each one to stretch it out.
LEFT- SOLEUS - Slight knee bend in the targeted leg
RIGHT - GASTROCS - Knee straight in targeted leg
Again, not rocket science but the soleus stretch is often neglected as it's a deep postural muscle which means it can tend to get overused throughout the day. Your gastrocs on the other hand are the fast/explosive muscle you would typically feel sore after a run.
