Calf ExercisesCalf Exercises: 3D animated videos explain in a professional way how to carry out the movement and how to breathe correctly. Many exercises for the calves to do at home and at the gym.

.

Calf Training Notes: this part of the body is often difficult to train and, above all, it is not easy to increase the volume of these muscles. The calf muscles can be trained both by using machines and weights or you can simply opt to take advantage of the natural weight of your body. Therefore, we suggest you keep changing exercises until you find the most effective method to reach your goals.

.

Elements of Calf Anatomy: the muscles of the lower part of your legs that make up the bulging of the calf include: the gastrocnemius, which has two ends (medial and lateral) and the soleus. These two muscles are naturally very strong since their action during running and jumping is to counterweigh the rest of the body while lifting the heel.
