The soleus muscle is the muscle that can pull with the greatest force.

The soleus muscle is found below the calf muscle, which is called the gastrocnemius muscle.

The soleus muscle is considered a very powerful muscle along with calf muscles because it pulls against the force of gravity, keeping the body upright so a person doesn’t fall backwards.

The soleus is very important for dancing, walking, and running.
