Give the soles of your feet and your tight calves some love with this easy stretch using a towel.
- Sit on the floor with both legs straight out in front of you.
- Fold a hand towel in half, and hold on to either end with each hand. Hook the middle of the towel around the ball of your right flexed foot.
- Bend your elbows back and pull the towel toward your chest while keeping your right leg straight, but don't jam the back of your knee into the floor. To increase the stretch in your calf, bend your right knee slightly.
- Hold here for 10 to 15 seconds, and then do this stretch with the left foot.
