Looking for a great way to help stretch out your calves and legs? Try a calf stretch in standing (or the runners stretch).

To perform the standing calf stretch / runners stretch:

  1. Using a chair or something sturdy for balance, stand with one foot directly behind you and one in front like a lunge position.  

  2. Keeping your back heel down and your foot facing forward, keep your back leg straight and bend your front knee forward until you feel a stretch in your back leg. Hold the stretch.
