Activity: Calf Stretch: gastrocnemius focus (supine)

X6b

Summary:

A simple stretch for the calf, focused more on the gastrocnemius muscle, good for those who can't fully weight bear on their leg

Description:

  • laying, back flat on the floor
  • grab either end of a belt or strap, with the middle looped under the ball of the foot
  • with the knee straight, pull gently on the ends of the belt/strap until a comfortable stretch is flet in the posterior part of the lower leg
  • NOTE: decrease the amount of hip flexion if too much stretch is felt at the hamstring (posterior thigh)
