Pro Foam Roller with Wrap Isolated Gastroc-Soleus Release

Isolated hands-free MFR and deep tissue massage of the calf muscles

Pro Foam Roller with Wrap Isolated Gastroc-Soleus Release
Find a relatively open area with a decent amount of floor space. Begin by sitting on the floor behind the Pro Foam Roller with Wrap, both calves draped across the Roller. Keeping hands planted on the floor, lift buttocks up to roll back and forth along the length of the gastroc-soleus complex. To isolate and control the release of the left gastroc-soleus complex, slowly stack right leg on top of left leg. Continue rolling with long sweeping strokes, working shorter repetitive strokes in areas of increased tightness. To increase the release of the lateral musculature, slowly allow left leg to turn out while rolling. Slowly return to neutral. Conversely then, to increase the release of the medial aspect, slowly allow left leg to turn in while rolling. Slowly roll back into neutral starting position.

NOTE: See “Gastroc-Soleus Release” for a more general variation.
