Hold-Re­lax Stretch

Canadian Running - - EXERCISES -

Lay supine and wrap a strap around the ball of the foot. Pull the strap to dor­si­flex the an­kle. Then, con­tract the calf mus­cles to push the ball of the foot into the strap for five sec­onds with­out mov­ing the foot. (This is called an iso­met­ric con­trac­tion.) Re­lax, and then pull the strap to bring the an­kle deeper into dor­si­flex­ion.
