Two muscles make up your calf, and fortunately, they’re easy to target separately while you’re stretching.

This stretch is specific to the soleus muscle, which is underneath the larger gastrocnemius. The difference between the lower calf stretch and the high calf stretch is all in how much (or how little) you bend your knee.
