Quick Tip: Do you know how to deeply stretch your calf muscle?

Posted by on Mar 23, 2016 in Bodywork Techniques, Exercises, Health and Wellness, Stretches

After showing you the partner psoas stretch last week with 2016 Olympian, Nathalie Marchino, Psoas co-owner, Scott Schwartz moves south this week to show you a great warm up that stretches your calves and gets your knees and ankles moving too.

Although Scott demonstrates this stretch with a chair, you can do this anywhere there is a stable ledge for you to drop your heel below your toes. Start off slow and as you warm up you can begin to sink deeper into your heel. In order to prevent any potential strain to your achilles, it is important not to go into this stretch too fast. This warm up is great for anyone who is running, jumping, or engaging in any physical activity with heavy impact to their knees and ankles.
