Activity: Rolling: calves

330c

Summary:

Myofascial release of the calves through use of a cylindrical roller (foam or otherwise) that can be done very easily.

Description:

  • start in a long sitting position (legs outstretched in front) with a slight lean back, supporting yourself with your hands
  • place a cylindrical roller (foam or otherwise) underneath the back of one calf (lower leg) while bending the other leg up to provide support.
  • dorsiflex or point the toe upwards to put the calf on a slight stretch
  • maintain a neutral spine during this exercise
  • gently roll back and forth over the roller, applying as much pressure as is comfortable
  • focus on the "tight" aspects of the calf
