Do you exercise calf muscles doing your leg workout? Generally speaking there are only a few things men find more appealing than a pair of sexy legs on a woman. However while working out their legs I find that many women don’t exercise calf muscles the way that they should. I’m not suggesting that a woman should end up with huge calves from over working them but you have to work the entire leg and that includes your calf muscles. You want your leg to have a sexy appealing look “all over” not just the thigh and hip area.
“This is “Dancing with the Stars” Kym Johnson & Lacey Schwimmer. This picture shows how for the most part it’s the lower legs that get all of the appearance not to mention how the heels help the legs alot. These women are always on there toes and this helps to create wonderful looking calves and give a great overall impression of their legs.”
Why So Many Forget About The Lower Legs
I think the main reason most women focus on the upper part of their legs are because that is the place the usually seek change. From the emails I have received this part of their legs is almost tops where they would consider their problem area. That simply means that this is the part of their leg where they find excessive fat. We all know that if there is one thing that will get a woman to workout out its not fitting into jeans or the dreaded thigh rub.
Reasons to Focus on Lower Leg
One reason for focusing on exercising your calf muscles is for balance and I not just talking about being able to stand up straight. But think about if you only work the top part of your body and never touch your lower part. You would end up looking like a lot of men in the gym who refuse to work their legs who have the massive upper body with the “chicken leg” look. Make sure you give your legs the sleek balance by working both upper and lower parts.
My second reason women should focus on their calves is simply because those are exposed more than any other part of the legs. Whether is shorts, swimsuits, skirts, or whatever else you wear that is going to show your legs your calves will be the first thing a man will see. If you think about when a man approaches you and says “you have wonderful legs” for the most part all he is commenting on are your calves. I mean let’s face unless you are in a bikini that is all he is really going to see!
Exercises for Building Sexy Calf Muscles:
Sprinting for Calves
Not only is sprinting excellent for building and sculpting a nice round butt, it also is ideal for great calves as well. Sprinting causes you to stay on your toes and is an excellent way to push your lower legs in an explosive way. I sprinted in high school and the women I saw on the track were some of the best looking and toned legs I have ever seen. If you want to lose weight fast or tone any part of your body then you should get into sprinting.
I just did a post a few days ago on how you can use jumping rope for high intensity interval training but skipping rope will no doubt help to build some pretty sexy calf muscles. The exercise forces you to stay on your toes and whenever you use your toes you use your calves. If you can do double jumps for a long period of time you will really burn the lower legs.
Also just look at all of the exotic dancer out there (Ok not all of them) but for the most part they all have nice tone legs. Much like performers such as “Beyonce” and “Shakira” who do whole performances while wearing heels the keep them on their toes for extends periods of time forcing them to work there calves.
My Thoughts On Exercising Calves
I find a woman’s leg to be very attractive and think that every part of the lower body should be worked including the calf muscles. For many women just the consistent walking in high heels all day will allow them to achieve similar tone and appearance. However for a better workout or for those who look to achieve a better overall appearance trying so of the tips recommended will surely help even taking up a dancing class that requires you to wear heels. Have you seen the legs on the women on dancing with the stars lately?
