Don’t give your glutes and quads all the attention when working your lower body at the gym. Your calves also need a bit of love!
Jump and squat exercises will sculpt and strengthen your calf muscles to avoid being at risk of injury. These will work your glutes and quads at the same time.
Step 1: Stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart.
Step 2: Begin by doing a normal squat then immediately engage your core and explosively jump up.
Step 3: When you land back on the floor, resume a normal squat position – this will be your first rep. When you land, ensure it is as silent as possible so that you don’t injure your heels.
Step 4: Do one or two sets of 20 reps.
