As promised a little while ago, here is part 2 in my "Functional Calf Care Series". In this edition we take a look at the biggest muscle in our calves and the one that is most visible, the Gastrocnemeus.
In the video below I take you through the role of the gastroc in during running and share some really cool foam rolling and dynamic mobility drills that will help you keep this and the other muscles in your calves healthy. Not only will it help you avoid injury but also help improve your running efficiency too.
