    Hi There,

    So I’m a total beginner, and was doing a back hook spin. It was looking really good and I got it, but my calf muscle from the leg that hooks hurts like crazy. Is this normal, or am I doing something wrong?

    Might you be trying to squeeze the pole between your hamstring and your calf? That might be why your calf is sore. Try to relax that knee-hold just a little bit and see if that’s better. And of course, just like Roxy said, stretch!
