Calf Stretch To stretch the Achilles tendon, lean forward against a wall, keep the knee of one leg straight and keep our heel on the ground while bending the knee in the other leg. Then, switch legs. When you rotate your ankle clock- and counter clock-wise, you are also recruiting the hamstring and quadriceps and using the whole leg. For a variation, try stretching your calves and legs in a side- to-side position. To get both the shin and calf to stretch, place them on the edge of a stair or a slant board. www.fitnessprofessionalonline.com
