Gastroc Stretch

The Gastrocnemius muscle 
Relevant anatomy: The gastrocnemius muscle is a less powerful plantar flexor than the soleus muscle. It also a knee flexor, helping to bend the knee, and provide propulsion when you walk, run, and jump. It has two parts. The medial head arises as a tendon on the medial condyle of the femur, and the lateral head arises on the lateral condyle of the femur. The muscle forms two bellies that lie side by side and end mid-calf in an aponeurosis which gradually merges to become the Achilles tendon at the place where it merges with the tendon of the soleus.
