    I have an issue where if I place too much plyo type stress on my leg, my upper calf goes haywire and even results in the strain felt in my lower hammy. All connected of course. I've been to many specialists to try and figure this out.

    However, it exists. I used to wear an ankle brace to limit the calf flexing, which I'll be going back to. I then got wrestling shoes to help with ankle support.

    This calf issue is what made me cancel my efforts towards the in-house fight night I wanted to do.

    I was able to start up training again and while being careful I was progressing. Then .... I did a workout on Saturday that involved quite a bit of lower leg landing and rebounding. Ladders, cones, etc. It was too much and my leg was provoked.

    To give this whole thing a chance I've got to be smarter on how I train. Part of that is the proper equipment. I know what shoe is "proper" depends on the person and situation. I think for me the high calf boxing shoe would give me the best chance to limit the wrong kind of stress, that which provokes my lower leg.

    I know I had some calf issues a few years ago (I’m well past the boxing stage but still work out including some road work to keep in some semblance of shape) and got some of that KT tape and it helped a lot.
