Professional tips to avoid calf injuries during exercise

Calf and soleus injuries are common in sports that involve running, jumping or changing direction quickly, such as football, basketball and track and field, among others. These injuries can occur at the least expected time, causing intense pain, swelling and difficulty walking or running. To avoid them, it is crucial to perform a proper warm-up that includes specific stretches for the calves and soleus, as well as a progressive workout that strengthens these muscles.

In addition, advice should be followed, such as the use of compression socks, special insoles, compression calf sleeves, among others. But also maintain good hydration and nutrition, and get enough rest between training sessions.

To avoid calf injuries while exercising, follow these professional tips:

  • 1 Proper warm-up: before starting your routine, perform warm-up exercises that include calf stretches.
  • 2 Progressive increase: increase the intensity and duration of your exercises gradually to avoid overloading your calf muscles.
  • 3 Good technique: perform the exercises correctly, paying attention to your posture and avoiding sudden movements that can injure your calves.
