Experiencing tight calves after physical exercise or training is a common issue. That said, is there something you can do about it rather than accepting it as the norm?
The answer is a giant ‘yes!’ in the form of using a foam roller or a vibrating peanut roller to massage the calf muscles and soften the tissue. This form of self-myofascial release is a game-changer when it comes to combating DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) and improving both recovery and performance. The unique combination of pressure and vibrations provides a deep massage while increasing blood flow to the area and flushing away lactic acid.
Unfortunately, many fail to use the right methods when foam rolling or forget to use both before and after exercise.
Our video guides help you perfect your effective foam rolling techniques. Take a look at one of the best methods for rolling your calves, using the vibrating foam roller underneath one calf muscle while crossing the other leg over to apply pressure and keep it steady.
