Tight Calves? Stretch Your Hamstrings!

I know it sounds weird, but if you have tight calves, stretching your hamstrings works better than a roller or using all those crazy calf stretching gizmos.

Trust me!

I know, I said hip flexor instead of lateral hip rotator for the piriformis stretch. I guess I was distracted.

Why did the music go on after the images? So you’ll be encouraged to relax, chill out. Never force stretching, though lengthening is a better term for what it is you’re trying to do.

You might want to check for tight hips, too, while you’re at it.

Wishing you happy trails,
