- Ankle flexibility
The calf and step exercise develops flexibility and mobility at the ankle joint. The calf and step exercise stretches the tibialis anterior (shin) and the gastrocnemius (calf). The calf and step is perfect for post-workout recovery and can be performed on a stair or step. To increase the range-of-motion you may perform the exercise on a higher step so the heals of your feet do not touch the floor.
- Stand on a step with your heels hanging off
- Slowly lower the heels down as far as they can go
- Bending the knees
