Technique – Start by standing with your feet shoulder width apart in front of the wall. Place your hands onto the wall again shoulder width apart. It’s important to keep your feet flat to the floor. Start the exercise when ready. Lean forwards onto your arms allowing your elbows to break slightly. Keep your feet flat and solid to the floor until you feel your calf muscles stretch. Hold this position for a count of 5. Press your arms back to a straight position to relieve pressure on the calf muscles. Repeat this stretching exercise until your calf muscles are fully stretched.
