6 Best Calf Stretches to Relieve Tight Calves 

Hold a lacrosse or softball and sit on the floor with your legs straight. Keep the ball at the base of your right calf, above the ankle. Moving the ball side-to-side with your right leg, gradually raise it to the top of the calf.

Calf Massage with Lacrosse Ball

Starting on top of the foam roller with your feet in front of you, carefully twist your butt side-to-side to feel for sensitive regions, working your way down to your calves. This place may be uncomfortable. Hold the foam roller here and breathe for 10-15 seconds to release the trigger point.

Soleus Foam Roller Massage

The calves, hamstrings, shoulders, and ankles all benefit from this stretch. Begin quadrupedally with wrists under shoulders and knees under hips.

Downward Facing Dog

Water consumption keeps the digestive system functioning. The body can better expel waste as the water passes through your intestines and stomach.

Heel Drop Stretch

Stand one to two feet from a wall. Move your right foot forward and place its ball against the wall. Keep your right heel down. Put your hands on the wall in front of you for support.

Wall Calf Stretch

Sit with your legs straight in front of you and grab a resistance band, strap, towel, or rope. Loop the band around your right foot's ball and pull it as your toes flex. Press your right heel away to stretch more.
