Stretch It: Calf and Shoulder Stretch Against a Wall

I've been working on running up hills because it's so good for my booty, but my calves have been getting super sore too. I've been doing this stretch daily since it also stretches my shoulders.

  • Stand in front of a wall with your feet together. Place your hands on the wall shoulder-width apart.
  • Rock your weight back on your heels without locking your knees, so your toes get pulled off the ground. Reach your bum out as far as you can by lengthening through your spine. Tuck your chin to feel a deep stretch in the back of your neck.
  • Stay here for thirty seconds and then shift your weight forward, placing your toes back on the ground.

Hi FitSugar! I do this stretch after each run, except I hold on to a rail. Feels so good along the shoulders, back, and on through the back of the legs. Since running is still a bit of a chore for me in my mind, I like to think of this as a nice way to salute myself for getting out there and doing it.
