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.


  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
