Calves really take a pounding when it comes to what muscles we use the most.
So a lot of the time they can just feel tight or overused as we use them all the time.
Have you ever had pain in your foot or knee?! It can be pretty restricting to your life.
In this video I go through 3 ways to help with that feeling of tightness through trigger ball release and 2 different calf stretches that are sure to help you out.
Trigger ball release and stretching are great in situations where you want a bit more range of motion or a bit of relief, but they should never be used as a long term solution!
Find the reason why your calves are so tight all the time.
There are many reasons, it could be because you lack mobility in your ankles, you’re doing something in your job, or in the gym that is aggravating them or you might need a bit more strength in a certain area.
The best way is to think about what lasting changes you can make so that you don’t have to always sit on the foam roller for the rest of your life.
