Calves: Foam Roller Stretch
You can also massage tight calves with a foam roller; it's intense but effective.
- Sit on the floor with your left ankle crossed over your right, and place the roller under your right calf.
- Lift your pelvis off the ground so your weight is supported by your hands and the roller.
- Roll the length of your calf, from the back of your knee to the Achilles tendon. Make sure to roll both the inside and the outside of the muscle.
- Repeat for 30 to 60 seconds, then switch legs.
