How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) Start off by sitting up straight with your legs extended out in front of you.

2.) Slowly bend one knee back toward you and placing your foot on the floor to stabilize your body.

3.) With the other leg keep it extended and flex your ankle so that the toes are pointed in towards your body.

4.) Either using a band, towel, belt or even your own hand pull your toes towards you until you feel a stretch in your calves and hold this position for 15 to 30 seconds.

5.) Return to the starting position and repeat for as many reps, sets and duration as desired.
