Alright. The next stretch we're doing is the standing calf stretch. So, there's a couple variations of ways of doing this. You can either go against a wall and put your foot up against a wall, or you can use a block, just like this. And, basically, you want to put just the ball of your foot on the block and you're going to lean into it. Keep your leg completely straight, shoulders back, core tight. You're going to lean in until you feel a good stretch throughout the calf. This area right here, you're going to feel a good stretch.

And if you're against a wall, you can even use the wall to kind of balance yourself and hold yourself against the wall to get an even deeper stretch. Otherwise, you're going to hold it here for about 20 seconds and then you're going to switch feet. Other one, same thing, right on the balls of your feet. You're going to lean into it. Keep that leg straight. Feel a good stretch throughout that calf.

And, like I said, if you're against a wall you can use the wall to get an even deeper stretch. Or, if you have the wall, you can put your foot against the wall instead of using a block if you don't have a block at home. So, hold it for about 20 seconds and then you can do another set, too.

Switch feet, other side same thing, 20 seconds, leg straight, shoulders back, core tight. And other side. Leg straight. Feel a good stretch throughout the calf. And there you go. That's how you do the standing calf stretch.
