Calf Stretch

KarenCardiogolf Daily Dose, Golf Fitness

If you play a lot of golf, you end up walking a great deal and this can tighten up your calf muscles.  If you don’t take time to warm up properly before you play or practice golf, your muscles may not be prepared to accept the stress  the golf swing can put on your calf muscles.

According toThe Mount Sinai Hospital, doing a simple calf stretch on a daily basis could help you prevent  or reduce the chance of calf muscle strain:

  • Keep your calf muscles strong and flexible, so they can absorb the energy of sudden physical stress
  • Learn the proper golf swing technique to decrease stress on all your muscles
