A few weeks back I strained my soleus and have gradually started building up my exercise levels again.
I have noticed after a few days back on full exercise that the muscles in my lower leg (calf and particularly soleus) are pulled very tight which I think puts me at risk of reinjury again.
I did quite a few stretches before riding to work this morning, but I'm still worried about further injury.
What sort of exercises should I be doing pre and post exercise to 'loosen-up' or reduce risk of injury in this area.
I do a lot of sport that puts pressure on this area (cycling, soccer and running). I also think the injury happened last time doing squats (without weights) when my calf muscles were already super tight.
