Posted by on Jul 22, 2015 in Health and Wellness, Stretches

Stretching the calf is incredibly important for runners, dancers, people dealing with plantar fasciitis, and well, everyone. Of the two largest muscles of the calf, gastrocnemius is the easiest to stretch. But the soleus muscle, farther down the calf, is a crucial player too.

In this week’s Quick Tip, Psoas co-owner Jenny Lightstone shares a new favorite that allows her to get deeper into the soleus and access it in a way she’s usually unable to. Try this out, and let us know what you think!
