Our calves and our Achilles are an often forgotten spot within our workout.

With the amount of pressure we put on our feet on any given day with the shoes and the walking we do, it's really important to make sure that every time you do a workout that you at least do some calf raises and you do some stretches with calves by just leaning them in a down position, laying that Achilles stretch out, and then from a strengthening standpoint, you can do a calf raise that goes up and down.

Repetitions are 10 to 15. Don't be afraid to hold it up at the top and get a smaller little raise on top of that. And from a stretching standpoint, as I said before, just let the foot drag down, and let the Achilles and the calf stretch out.
