The hamstrings are a group of muscles on the back of the thigh. They are responsible for bending and straightening your knee. The hamstrings can be stretched by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and bend forward, keeping your back straight. The gastrocnemius is a muscle in the calf of the leg, and one of two muscles in that part, along with the soleus. Unlike the soleus, which is a slow-twitch muscle fiber, the gastrocnemius has predominantly fast-twitch muscle fibers. The gastrocnemius is mainly responsible for straightening your knee and standing up from a sitting position.The gastrocnemius can be stretched by standing on one leg with your arms outstretched in front. Keeping your back straight, try bending the other leg backwards toward you to stretch the muscle in the calf of your back leg.

A partner is not required to perform this exercise but it can help make it easier and more effective. The partner should stand behind you and wrap their arms around your waist on either side of your stomach. They should then pull you back towards them while you lean forward at the same time. This will cause your arms to bend slightly as they support some of your weight. Hold this position for 15-30 seconds before switching sides or moving on to another exercise.
