Portable stretch: Calves

Looking for inconspicuous ways to stretch when you're waiting for the bus, standing in line or riding the elevator? Well here is a "portable" stretch - a stretch you can take with you wherever you go.

While standing, straighten your leg out to the front or the side, depending on where you have room. Then flex your toes, pulling them back toward your knee. Hold for 10 seconds then switch legs. Repeat a couple of times or until the bus comes.

You can do this stretch wearing any shoe and if you like to wear heels this is a great way to keep your calves from getting tight.
