If you look down at your legs and gasp in disbelief at your skinny calves, it’s time to take action and increase the size of these vital muscles. However, perhaps the opposite is true for you. Maybe you believe your calves look a bit flabby. Perhaps you want to strengthen and contour your calf muscles for a chic, slim appearance when you wear shorts, skinny jeans, and tall boots.
Dedicated calf exercises each week will add mass to your lower legs and help you maintain your balance, walk with stability, sprint faster, and improve your strength in daily life and sports.
Did you know that your calves actually consist of two groups of muscles?
If you want to optimize the size and strength of your calf muscles, there are specific exercises you can do to increase the mass of the gastrocnemius and soleus.
Regardless of your fitness level, we will help you discover movements that develop calf muscles you can be proud of showing off.
These are four of the best calf exercises to get you started. Most of these calf muscle exercises require no special equipment, so you won’t have to do these calf exercises at a gym.
You can start with sitting calf raises and work your way up to standing. Then, as you get stronger, add dumbbell weights for more intensity.
This is one of the best calf exercises to focus on the soleus and can even help you with balance.
Remember that your knees should remain bent throughout the entire movement.
This calf-building workout can be done pretty much anywhere. Plus, this exercise helps to develop your calf muscles quickly.
This is another one of the calf muscle exercises where you can add dumbbells as you get stronger.
Plyometric exercises can be especially beneficial if you’re already in pretty good shape. Like the Jump Squat, this leaping activity will improve your calves’ power.
This is one exercise where you do not want to use dumbbells or other hand-held weights.
To build, tone, and increase the mass of your calves, focus on activities that challenge these muscles to work against resistance. However, doing too much training, or worse yet, doing calf muscle exercises incorrectly, can quickly lead to injury. That’s why it is important to work under the guidance of a fitness professional, especially as you get started.
