Tennis Ball – Calves

How to perform this stretch?

  • Start by sitting down upright with the ball under the calf muscle
  • Slowly roll up and down in segments from above the heel towards the knee
  • If you find a painful area, either stay on that area until the pain lessens or slowly roll over it.

Variations:

  1. Opposite foot bent on the floor (less pressure)
  2. One foot over the other (more pressure)
  3. For both variations above, there’s an option of finding a tight spot and pointing the toe up and down

What if my wrists hurt?

  • Try with the hands wider and fingers turned out to reduce wrist bend, which could be causing the irritation
  • Try other stretches from my "Home Stretch" series, e.g. Calf Stretch Variations and Soleus Stretch Variations
