How to Massage the Calf Muscles

Calf muscles play an important role in leg movement, and particularly in movements that require explosive motion. This makes them prone to overtraining and injury.

Percussive massage with the MyoBuddy will elongate the muscle and release tightness that is sometimes associated with overtraining and recovery.
