Legs day! It’s all about legs day, people.
We all know how important our quads are, but that’s not all when we talk about legs day. Unfortunately, a lot of people are neglecting their lower legs thinking they’ll be ok if they only do some squats.
Don’t get me wrong – squats are must-have for any training session, but if you add some extra 10 minutes per session training your calves, you’ll feel the difference in just a couple of weeks.
By training your calf muscles, you’ll start to notice that you explosiveness is getting onto the next level. The number of those crazy calf pulls (we ‘ve all experienced them) will significantly decrease, which means, of course, you’ll be more injury-free.
Strong calf means strong Achilles also. The Achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in our body. When the calf muscles flex, the Achilles tendon pulls on the heel. This movement allows us to stand on our toes when walking, running, or jumping. So it really doesn’t matter what sport you’re practicing regularly – check out the video below and come check with us in a month to see if your “overall rating” didn’t get higher.
P.S. Just remember – recovery time is vital to your success.
