I kid, I kid. But if you have not, then pretty please VOTE for me! I am in the running to become a part of Team REFUEL (as I believe so strongly in drinking choc milk after a workout), and I could win a grant. I would SO appreciate it! You can vote EVERY day until January 15th.
You better believe I will keep reminding you to do it 😉 (P.s. I am in the “individuals group”–you can sort to just be that category so you spend less time looking for me –then find my name, “Annette Perkins,” and click the pic to vote for ME every day!!)
If there is one thing my husband looked for in a wife it was good calves. Okay, that is sort of a lie. He is a much deeper guy than that, but my having nice (or at least something-there) calves was an extra plus for him and he took it 😉
Calves are something that can become defined and worked through a variety of different sports and activities, but there is also an exercise to rule them all : the calf raise.
Focus On : Calf Raises
As in other “focus on” posts (such as biceps curls and squats), calf raises can be done almost anywhere, and with anything. My sister with her 2-month newborn can do calf raises in the kitchen! My little bro can do calf raises in the weight room. And my brother-in-law could do them in his office while taking a break from the computer.
So, how do we do them?
Here you go:
- stand with your heels under your hips, toes slightly turned out
- option: hold something heavy (either a bar on your back your something heavy in your hands)
- rise up onto the balls of your feet
- after a few counts, lower the heels back the floor
- repeat, keeping good form
Not too hard, eh? But the results are magical
So yah, making life in general even more fabulous.
It could even score you a spouse (if you don’t have one yet)! 😉 Heh.
In other news, I am loving THESE right now:
Oh so delicious. And chocolatey. mmmmmmm
Have a lovely Friday!! It is ZUMBA time up in here
What did YOU do to score a spouse–if you have one?? hehe. What do YOU do to sculpt the calves YOU have?? What are YOUR Friday plans??
