Stretching the Calves Muscles

Stretching the Calves Muscles

To get a full contraction of a muscle, first you have to get a full extension. With the calves muscles, this means going all the way down when you do full-range movements, lowering your heels as far as possible before coming up all the way onto your toes to get a contraction.

The longer the range of movement and the fuller the extension and contraction of the calves muscles, the more it will develop. This is especially valuable in calf training, since our normal use of the calf when we walk and run involves mostly the mid-range function.

Use a block for Standing Calf Raises just high enough so that your heels touch the floor at the bottom of the movement. Lowered your heels enough to get maximum stretch from your calf muscles.
