Calf Tightness – Why is Your Buddy Holding you Back?
We all have experienced some calf tightness after running or activity, but that is not what we are talking about here. If you have constant tightness or stiff ankle (or ankles) no matter how much stretching or mobilizing you do your calf is probably holding on for dear life. When you have too much motion elsewhere your buddy (the calf) is trying to help you out. Give it a break, fix the excessive motion and let that calf relax again!
