Beautiful pumped legs are the dream of those who systematically go in for sports and watch their shape. It is difficult to pump the calves of the legs. Usually the lower part of the leg gets less attention than the press, the biceps or the muscle of the thighs and buttocks. Calf muscles belong to those muscle groups that few people work out separately. This is in vain. After all, a beautiful view of the legs begins with these muscles, because this part of the legs can be opened both in winter and in summer. In this article, we will analyze the correct method of training calves for women. Only special exercises for calves will help eliminate disproportion and provide the necessary load. Performing them, you can pump your calves, if they are thin, and if necessary, you can remove fat from your legs. Exercises for calves are selected in such a way as to adequately work out exactly the muscle group that gives a relief outline to the legs. This can be achieved only by regular physical exertion, which acts on the problem area.
