Avoid Calf Stretch Pitfalls

What Not To Do:

Calf Stretch

Now that you’ve seen our blog on what a good calf stretch should look like, here are a few common mistakes (calf stretch pitfalls) to look out for:

  1. Be careful not to place your foot too far away from the wall, like soimg_2978
  2. Maintain a normal arch in your foot.  Avoid becoming “flat footed” like the picture shows.  This will ensure that you’re stretching your calf and not inadvertently stretching your foot. img_2977
  3. Keep your foot pointed directly at the wall instead of letting it drift to the side. This picture is another great example of what NOT to do.  fullsizerender

Now you have all the knowledge you need to do a proper calf stretch while avoiding the most common mistakes!
