CALF-TASTIC CARDIO

20 minute calf workout 

 

At Home calf:

Uphill walking or running is excellent for toning and defining your calf muscles. Both exercises will also burn unwanted body fat.

Stair climbing (or using a comparable machine at the gym) is also excellent calf-toning cardio.

Push off on your toes, not your heels, to more directly engage your calves. If you really want to take things up a notch, try hopping up a staircase on just one leg, then switch sides and repeat. Feel the burn!

You can incorporate 20 minutes of cardio after any resistance workout, including direct calf training.
