Calves Roll

1st Secondary -- Calves Roll

Use this SMR exercise to address the muscles in the back of your calf.

If you have trouble with shin splints, heel pain or achilles tendon pain, or just about any other discomfort in your calves, then this exercise is for you!

The soleus muscle is involved in everything you do that involves the foot.

When it locks up, all foot movements (and even some knee & hip movements) are compromised.

You should do this movement at least once every 2 weeks. (more often is better)
