How to Stretch Your Calves for a Female Leg Workout

Learn how to do calf stretches from personal trainer Erin Sharoni in this Howcast workout video.


Hey. My name is Erin and I'm a former U.S. Junior Olympic certified swim coach and personal trainer and fitness is my passion, so I cannot wait to share it with you guys. Do not forget to stretch because the calves are the first things to cramp and many people don't stretch enough. So you can just come into a runner's lunge and instead of tucking under, which is what you would do to stretch the front of your leg, you can put your heel down and just lean forward and feel a nice stretch to the calf. You guys all know how to do that. You can also come forward, straighten that leg and lean over you'll feel a nice stretch down the back of the leg. And of course switch sides. Don't forget your other side. If you can find a stair you can put your foot up on that stair and stretch forward so bring your toe back to really stretch that calf out. Make sure that you hold those calf stretches for 30 seconds each and do a couple of them. That's it. You're golden. You'll have nice calves in no time.
