This exercise is great for runners. It focuses on stretching the calf muscles.
- Start by taking a large step forward. Your back foot should be pointing straight forward and as flat on the ground. Slowly bend the front knee until you start to feel a stretch in the back leg below the knee. You may use a wall for balance, or place your hands on your bent knee.
- Repeat twice with each leg, alternating legs. Hold each stretch approximately 12-15 seconds.
