Remember the last time you had a massage? How did it feel when the therapist worked your calves? Were you in tears? We do a lot of jumping and I often find myself with tight calves. This in itself isn’t so bad, but consider the big picture. When we experience pain in a specific joint, it’s usually a good idea to check out what’s going on with the muscles up and down stream from that joint. In other words if your knees hurt, have a closer look at your calves, hamstrings and quads. There are several dynamic and static stretches you can do for your calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus). Ask your coach to help you with these. You can also use the foam roller for self myofascial release, as shown in this video.
