using a DuoBall
This exercise aims to release tension from the Achilles tendon by releasing the calf musculature and the tissues that surround the tendon. The Duoball is the perfect tool here, as it exerts no pressure on the tendon itself if positioned correctly.Make sure to go completely down to the heel bone and up to your knee.
Duoball – the Duoball is the evolution from the classic „two tennis balls in a sock“ concept. It is a great tool to deeply release muscles and the fascia. It has some advantages over a classic foam roller like the Blackroll, as it allows to roll closer to the bony tendon insertions like on the Achilles or the patella tendon. The release is also more intense – a must-have for advanced users!
