Purpose: To stretch your calf muscles and to improve ankle mobility. Can also aid in relieving knee pain when used with other stretches and exercises.
Instructions: Place the toes of the leg that you are going to stretch on the foam roller while keeping your heel on the floor. Step in front with your other foot and lean your hands against the wall for support, bend forward to get a deeper stretch. Perform this exercise with knee straight first, then with your knee bent to get both parts of your calf muscles.
Common Errors: As long as you are feeling a stretch in the back of the lower leg, you are doing this correctly!
