Day 66: Calf Stretch

Share this content

The Calf Stretch will keep your legs flexible and relaxed during a long day at work.

Step 1: Stand up and face a wall approximately arm's-length away.

Step 2: Place the palms of both hands on the wall at shoulder height.

Step 3: Take a big step back with your right leg, allowing the left leg to bend at the knee.

Step 4: Gently drop the back of your right heel to the floor until you feel a stretch in your right calf muscles.

Step 5: Hold this stretch for 30-45 seconds without bouncing.

Step 6: Return to an upright standing position.

Step 7: Switch legs and repeat.
