Calves are the back portion of your legs. It is is very important that you work it out as they’ll make you run faster, make your legs appear ripped, help stabilize your feet, etc. In fact, basketball players and footballers strengthen their calf muscles so that they can jump better in the air.
Some of the exercises that can help strengthen these calves are – standing calf raises and seated calf raises. Usually, you walk around all day using your calf muscles but still most people don’t have great calves. Therefore, it is important that you workout your calves using a lot of weight otherwise you won’t get results.
Running for a long time, skipping rope too are some exercises that are good for your calf muscles.
