The Gastrocnemius muscle is more commonly known as the calf muscle. Its purpose is to plantar flex the foot (pointing the toes down). The most commonly used exercises to train the gastrocnemius muscles are standing calf raises, seated calf raises, and donkey calf raises. If you are interested in learning how to stretch the gastrocnemius muscle, check out the exercise database.

I hope this answers your question. If not, please write again with a more specific question.
