This helps breakdown any facial restrictions and improve calf flexability.

This helps breakdown any facial restrictions and improve calf flexability.

Set-Up: Begin exercise in sitting position with foot placed directly on the ground with the stick held on the calf with both hands. 

Action: Next, Apply about 10 pounds of pressure over muscles (+/- depending upon your needs) and start to roll the stick in the same muscle path. 

Massage each muscle group 10-20 seconds. With each pass, gently press deeper into the muscle. Avoid massaging directly over bones.

Never perform exercise to the point of pain, but make sure that your muscle is feeling just short of the pain threshold as this will help to establish the best mobility in the muscle tissue.
