GLOBESITY FOUNDATION – My Healthy Weight Bootcamp


Calf Stretch

  1. Face the back of your chair with one leg straight behind you and the other in front of you, slightly bent.
  2. Place your hands over the top of your chair with a light grip.
  3. Keep your back leg straight with both heels planted on the floor and lean your torso towards the top of your chair. You should feel this in the calf of your back leg.
  4. Hold for a few seconds and then switch legs. Repeat for about a minute.

  2. Slowly stand up, using controlled movements, until you reach your full height.
  3. Hold for a few seconds, and then slowly sit down again. Repeat for about a minute.
