Whether you've got skinny calves or fat calves, these calf exercises
can help! They will assist you in building a beautiful set of toned
calves which you can show off at the beach this summer.
1. Double Leg Calf Raises
This exercise requires a bit of balance. If you're a little wobbly,
either hold onto something or make sure you're at the bottom of the
set of steps! We don't want to hurt you before you've even started!
•Find a step of some kind.
•Hold a weight in each hand.
•Stand up straight, with the balls of your feet on the edge of the
•Lift up onto your tip toes and tense your calf muscles.
•Hold for about 1/2 a second.
•Lower your heels below the edge of the step.
2. Single Leg Calf Raises
This exercise uses a weight, but you don't have to use it if you're not strong enough yet.
Funnily enough, calf exercises are often more effective with less weight anyway!
•Find a step of some kind and something nearby. eg: a chair to hold onto.
•Hold a weight in one hand.
•Use your other hand to help you balance.
•Stand up straight, with the ball of one foot on the edge of the step.
•Bend your other leg behind you.
•Lift up onto your tip toes and tense your calf muscle.
•Hold for about 1/2 second.
•Lower your heel below the edge of the step.
•After your set is finished, change legs.
3. Calf Raises Using Weights
You can make these calf exercises more effective if you have
something under you toes - like a plank of wood. This allows your
calves to go through just that little bit more range of motion.
•Get a chair or bench to sit on.
•Hold a weight across your thighs or one above each thigh.
•Sit up straight, with your feet flat on the ground.
•Lift up onto your tip toes and tense your calf muscles.
•Hold and squeeze for 1-2 seconds.
•Lower your legs back down to the floor.
4. This exercise is really good because it's a lot easier to balance
when you're leaning against the swiss ball. Of these calf exercises,
this is our favorite.
•Get a swiss ball and 2 dumbbells.
•Put the swiss ball on the wall and rest your chest against it.
•Hold a dumbbell in each hand.
•Using both legs, lift up onto the balls of your feet.
•Lower down slowly.
WARNING: For People With Fat Calves
It's important you know that calf exercises are one of the least
effective ways of reducing the fat stored there. Rather you need to
work larger muscle groups to boost your resting metabolic rate. This
will help you burn fat from all over your body - including your calves!

jogging is an excellent exercise because it let you lose weight
evenly throughout your whole body. If you want to lose weight in
specific areas, you should target them with exercises. If they are
your problem areas, they will be very difficult to tone. You will have
to work double on them. The best approach is this:
1. Lower/control your daily calorie intake (control for normal
weight, lower for overweight).
2. Run/jog to lower your overall body fat percentage.
3. Target your problem areas with exercises.
an excellent exercise, you can do it in front of your TV: sit on a
stool, and put your toes under something (piece of heavy furniture,
for example). In your hands hold a little dumbbell. Please, make sure
that it is not very heavy, start with one kilo, for example, or you
will damage your back and spine! Slowly move the upper part of your
body back, until it's parallel with the ground. Stop for a second and
move it back to the sitting position. Repeat ten times. Every week add
to the number of repetitions. You will see the results in a week,
guaranteed! You will see or feel under the fat - if you have any - six
pack and muscles. Dumbbells do wonders. Much better than these
crunches - I came up to three hundreds and there was no results AT
ALL. With the dumbbells you will see it in a week.
OK, It won't be easy and you must NOT carry this on once you have been on holiday or else you could become very ill. Breakfast: 100 Kcal, Eg. A Crumpet Lunch: 200Kcal, Eg. A sandwich, Small bowl of pasta or soup and bread roll Dinner: 300Kcal, Eg. Pasta, small portions of meals Snack: 50Kcal, Fruit / Dried fruit. If you have an iPod / other apple device you could download MyfitnessPal it's really good (I have it) you track what you eat and what exercise you do and it tells you have many calories you've eaten and lost. If you aim to lose 5kg in 10 days your going to have to do a lot of exercise, I mean a lot because that's about 1lb a day, and to lose 1lb you have to burn 3500Kcal (or not eat 3500Kcal), so This means sticking to a nothing about 1000Kcal a day food intake and burning over 1500Kcal a day during exercise. Good luck

Change your diet try eating fruits and raw or fresh vegetables, drink a lot of water at least 8 ounces a day and limit your bread and meat intake you do need some meat but you can start have a protein energy breakfast drink in the morning than eating bacon and eggs or pancakes. You need at least 4 fruits and 4 vegetables in a day and you need breakfast a light lunch like a tuna on a salad of baby spinach with whatever you like on a salad. Then at dinner have a well Portioned dinner not A filling dinner like a cup of rice, a cup string beans and a bake chicken breast. Not to much it is very hard but in your case you need to I know it must be very hard in basic but keep your head up you will enjoy the end results . Your body will thank you in the end. GOOD LUCK
