Stretching for scuba divers to relieve calf and foot cramps

A very interesting article from Divester on fitness and excercises for divers.

Bill recently mentioned Fitness for Divers, a book dedicated entirely to, um, dive fitness. I was poking around Fitness' website, and I noticed this concise PDF summary of exercises divers should perform if they suffer from foot or calf cramps.

Not surprisingly – since they work the same muscles – the exercises are remarkably similar to those I do before I go jogging. Before you blame your body for causing you pain, though, check out the tips on the first page on how to eliminate your equipment as the source of your muscle pain.
