6 Best Calf Stretches to Relieve Tight Calve


Keep the ball at the base of your right calf, above the ankle. Moving the ball side-to-side with your right leg, gradually raise it to the top of the calf. While travelling, rest the ball in sore spots and spin your foot clockwise and anticlockwise for 10-15 seconds to massage them.

Calf Massage with Lacrosse Ball

Starting on top of the foam roller with your feet in front of you, carefully twist your butt side-to-side to feel for sensitive regions, working your way down to your calves. Hold the foam roller here and breathe for 10-15 seconds to release the trigger point if this place is uncomfortable.

Soleus Foam Roller Massage

The calves, hamstrings, shoulders, and ankles all benefit from this stretch. Begin quadrupedally with wrists under shoulders and knees under hips. As you drive your hands into the floor, put your head between your elbows and raise your butt.

Downward Facing Dog 

Try this to stretch and strengthen your Achilles tendon: Take your yoga block to a step or higher surface. Step both feet up and place your right heel over the edge. Drop most of your weight into your right heel as it falls. Flip sides after 30 seconds to a minute of this stretch.

Heel Drop Stretch 

Stand 1–2 feet from a wall. Right foot forward, ball against wall. Ground your right heel. You can support yourself with your hands on the wall. Press through the left foot as the hips travel forward to stretch more. Hold this stretch for 30–60 seconds, then switch sides.

Wall Calf Stretch

Sit with your legs straight in front of you and grab a resistance band, strap, towel, or rope. Loop the band around your right foot's ball and pull it as your toes flex. Press your right heel away to stretch more. Repeat on your right leg after 30–60 seconds.
