Don’t feel bad if you’ve been neglecting your calves as part of your workout – even Arnie made that mistake at one point. However before you start resembling this guy – it’s time to hit the calves. 

Luckily for you, these exercises can be done anywhere and are a simple way to build explosive strength and to create the balance of a ninja.  



1. Find a stair or ledge and face it, holding on to the railing or wall for balance.


 2. Step up with about 1/3 of your feet on the surface and remainder of your feet sticking out off the surface.


 3. Push up on your toes for 10



4. Dip down below the surface for 10. Repeat 3 – 4 times.
