26 Apr 3G Cardio AVT exercise tips: calf stretch
One of the best stretches you’ll ever get for your calf muscles is with the 3G Cardio® 5 or 6 AVT™ Vibration Machines.
The calves are made up primarily of the gastrocnemius and the soleus muscles, which connect at the heel via the Achilles’ tendon. The calf muscles absorb all the shock of the body and can withstand an awful lot of wear and tear, but they can also wear down if you don’t work to strengthen and stretch them. It’s easy to develop many problems related to the calf muscles, such as calf cramps, strains and worst of all problems with the Achilles.
To stretch and strengthen the calf muscles, stand sideways on the 3G Cardio® AVT™ Vibration Machine, with one leg in front of the other and toes facing forward. Slightly bend the front leg, while keeping the rear leg is straight. Push the heel of the rear leg down and you should feel tension in your calves.
To vary this exercise, keep your back straight and push your pelvis forward. Adjust heel tension to vary as well. Try this stretch also while facing towards the upright column and lean against the handles.
