Lower leg muscle tightness
I need some advice on how to prevent lower leg muscle tightness. This occurs during my treadmill workouts, as well as when i walk fast. I increase my protein intake, stretch before i start my workout.

lower leg muscle tightness
I have the exact same problem...but I found a way to loosen those muscles thanx to a personal trainer. I invested in a foam roller. I purchased it at my gym. (25.00) It's awsome. Use it to roll out those tight calf muscles. I use it from my calves to my quads to my back. Best investment I ever made. And I saw it on the Dr. Oz show. When you roll out your muscles it's like giving your muscles a deep tissue massage. It really works and it will help over time lessen the tightness thru your workouts. I hope I helped.

ditto on the foam roller. use it after your workout. it will hurt, don't let that scare you - it's like a deep tissue massage on tighted/knotted muscles.
