This is a simple way to stretch your calves while sitting using a towel or band.

Towel stretches involve using a towel to help assist you while you stretch. While there are many methods that you can use to stretch your calves, the towel calf stretch is a simple way to improve the flexibility of this muscle group.

Here's how you do it:

  • Sit comfortably on the floor. If the backs of your legs are really tight and you find yourself slumping, then sit on a pillow so you can keep your spine straight.
  • Fold your right leg in, and reach your left leg long.
  • Wrap a or band around the ball of your left foot.
  • Use the strap to pull your toes toward your head.
  • Do not jam your knee into the floor and keep your left heel on the ground.
  • Hold for 20-30 seconds, and then repeat on the other side.
