Lower leg workouts are just as important for our legs as workouts for the upper legs and bum.
Having strong calf and ankle muscles will reduce the risk of injury in most activities, and increase our upper leg strength as well.
These lower leg workouts are great for the calves, knees, and some are even good for our thighs!
Try adding some of these into your weekly schedule for some killer calves and super strong gams!
1. Calf Raises
Calf raises are one of the most iconic lower leg workouts.
This exercise will tone your calf, feet, and ankle muscles all in one.
Begin by standing straight up with feet together and arms at your side or holding something for balance.
Slowly raise up so you are in an elevated position on the balls of your feet and your toes.
Hold this position, then slowly lower back down to starting.
Your legs will be feeling the burn after just a few of these.
