Standing Calf Stretch

August 11, 2012

Standing calf stretch

By performing calf stretches regularly it is possible to improve blood flow and increase muscular balance around a joint. Calf stretches allow your knee joint to move through a full range of motion thereby reducing pain. By adding calf stretches to your workout or stretching routine you can greatly improve overall knee health.

A simple stretch which can be performed in the comfort of your own home, is a standing wall stretch.

Place your right foot forward, while leaving your heel on the ground. Lean forward while using your hands as support until a stretch is felt in your right calf. Keep your leg straight while maintaining balance. Hold for 15 seconds and then repeat with the left foot. This stretch should be repeated for 10 sets on both legs.
