Technique – Start by kneeling down on the floor in an area that will provide enough space to perform the exercise. Place your hands down on the floor and place both feet on the floor. Extend one leg back until straight placing the ball of your foot onto the floor. Press the ball of your foot into the floor and attempt to place the heel of your foot onto the floor until you feel your calf muscle stretch. Hold this position for a count of 5. Lean your foot back forwards to relieve pressure on the calf muscles. Repeat this exercise until your cal muscle is full stretched. Repeat this stretching technique with the other leg.
