Why your calf muscles are tight & what to do about it
Bit of a long title, but does what it says on the tin..tight calf muscles, stretch them and they are just like your tight hamstrings, they always come back, why is that, could it be they are tight for a reason, tight because something else isn’t allowing them to “let go”?
This could possibly be inhibited glutes, which means your glutes may not be doing their job, but your calves are instead.
Get the bum working and the calves can release.
How you can do that?
Find a tender area on your calf and give is a massage with your fingers or with a tennis ball or foam roller.
About 30 – 60 seconds is just fine
Then strengthen the glutes by doing 5 reps of a glute bridge. Don’t hold your breath or clench the jaw.
Repeat twice a day
Your glutes will love you..
