Your Ticket to Well-defined Calves
Who doesn’t like to flaunt a well-toned pair of calves?
When it comes to toning your legs, your calves deserve the same amount of attention as your thighs.
Having strong and toned calf muscles makes your legs look amazing in high heels, and provide your body with a great foundation, helping boost your training and exercise performance.
Here are 3 workouts that will do the trick:
Sit up straight on an exercise mat. Bend your left knee and place your left foot on the floor for support. Straighten your right leg and flex your ankle. Using a band, towel or your hand, pull the toes on your right foot toward you.
Hold for 10-20 seconds, working out any tension in your calf, then switch sides and repeat.
Dumb-bell Calf Raise:
Stand upright holding a dumbbell in each hand, by your sides. With your toes pointing forwards, raise your heels off the floor by contracting your calves. Hold the contraction for a second.
As you inhale, return to the starting position by slowly lowering your heels.
The Calf Lift
Stand with your feet wider than shoulder-width apart, with your toes pointed out at 45°. Engage your core and hold your arms in front of your chest for balance. Lift your heels off the floor and squat, keeping your knees above your ankles.
Pause, then squeeze your glutes to stand up and slowly lower your heels.
Try these for yourself and see the effects for yourself.
