Today we’re going to focus on the Achilles tendon, calf, and ankle. Working on this area can have a tremendous impact on your ability to get all the way down into the bottom of a squat. So if squat depth is a problem area for you, watch this video and make this stretch a part of your daily habits.
All you need to do this stretch is a wall or a couch. Spend about five minutes on each side and experiment with rotating your body to find the places that need more work. While stretching is not necessarily “comfortable,” it also should not be painful. To avoid injury, be patient and don’t push too hard.
