The gastrocnemius muscle is a powerful superficial muscle that is in the back part of the lower leg (the calf). It runs from its two heads just above the knee to the heel, and is involved in standing and walking. Along with the soleus muscle it forms the calf. Gastrocnemius attaches to the foot via the Achilles tendon.
