Quick Calf Workout to Add Definition to Your Calves

Want great-looking legs? Then you need to target four major muscle groups of the lower body: The quadriceps (front of your thighs), hamstrings (back of your thighs), glutes (butt), and your calf muscles (back of your lower leg).

The calf muscles are often overlooked when it comes to working out, even though the exercises that target them are fairly simple to perform. These movements can be done with or without weights like SelectTech Dumbbells and just a few basic exercises will go a long way. Working the calf muscles will not only make them look better, but strengthening them can also help with sports performance as well as injury prevention.

Here is a simple yet effective calf routine that only takes a few minutes to complete. It calls for just two exercises that you will do two times each:

  1. Standing Calf Raises (30 seconds)
  2. Single Leg Calf Raises (30 seconds per leg)

Do this routine a few times per week and you will be on your way to a stronger and more toned lower body!
