RollStretch techniques for soleus


In today's video, Liv shows you how to work *soleus*, the second important calf muscle, underlying *gastrocnemius*.

First, a stretch that can be done on the seat of any hard chair, and the second a RollStretch classic, requiring a piece of dowel (a broom handle can substitute).

You can really get into the fascia (which is the substance that gets torn when you "pull' a calf muscle), and the Achilles tendon. In this exercise, the RollStretch technique is being applied to tissues that are under stretch.
