Toned Legs: Calf Raises

Calf Raises

Most people tend to forget about the calf muscle when they are toning their legs, but trust us, toned calves look amazing in dresses and especially in heels! Start with your feet together and your hands on your hips. Slowly move up to your tippy toes, and then slowly move down (as if you are pulsing up and down). Repeat for at least 10 times, and make sure to stretch those calves afterwards.
