How to Stretch a Tight Calf Muscle (and Keep it Loose Forever)
In today’s video, I highlight how to stretch a tight calf muscle and what you need to do to keep it loose forever.
Traditionally, we stretch with the mindset of continuously having to do it in order to maintain change. We get stuck with this idea that we stretch to reclaim mobility as opposed to just restoring it and moving on.
As a result, we can easily get stuck in a loop of stretching without a finish line. Clinically, this means that we often attack the symptom without really considering why it’s become tight in the first place. So the loop continues.
If wanting to permanently loosen your calf muscles, it’s important to address two of its common causes – the low back and the ankle. If you can, then you can become someone who used to have tight calf muscles – which is how we all should be in fairness.
Watch this video to find out how to stretch a tight calf muscle and address the underlying cause of that calf muscle tightness.
