High speed jumping is the movement with the highest risk of a calf strain

Sudden changes in activity such as running and jumping, or even fast acceleration and fatigue can cause a calf strain.

Symptoms people often describe can range from difficulty running, feeling of tightness or cramping legs, and sometimes even reduced power and performance.

It is reported that muscle strains are the number 1 reported reason for athletes missing games during the regular sports season.
