Hi. My name is Shane Freels with LIVESTRONG.com. Today, I'm going to show you several exercise that you can do with a pulled calf muscle. The main thing when you're looking at how do I exercise with a pulled calf is you don't want to get too much flexor or extension in the ankle. What that does is that cause the calf to really be strained either in the activation stage or in the stretching stage. So you could do a variety of upper body stretches, you could a variety of cardio exercises. One of the cardio exercises that I like is doing the elliptical machine if you're looking for ways to try to get your heart rate up and get your upper body moving. The elliptical is great because your foot is in a stationary movement and there's not really a lot of flexion or extension, let's put it that way, as if you were on a treadmill and you're running. Now one thing about the elliptical is you want to keep it at a very low level. You don't want to the level to be too high. So would start out at a base level and just work on small revolutions. The other thing I like is just doing basic body weight squats. You could do a leg press, you could do leg extensions, you could do hamstring curls on a machine. Any upper body exercise is obviously welcomed. I would actually say really focus on trying to make it a circuit workout. Get you an upper body, do a back, do a chest, then do some legs, then maybe a core exercise of some kind. But really kind of mix in a circuit that will allow you to still get your heart rate up to build muscular endurance and gain muscular strength, at the same time letting your calf have the relaxation that it needs, and not putting too much stress on it. My name is Shane Freels and we just showed you several good exercises with a pulled calf muscle. Hope you utilize them well. Have an amazing day.
