Question: Calf muscle


 gorby198 - Tue Jan 11, 2005 5:13 am

Hi,
I'm 6'2, and weigh around 82kg, having lost quite a bit of weight in recent years. One thing I've found though is my calves are very flabby and wobble alot. What kind of exercises or something can I do to help this?
thanks
jason

User avatar Hi gorby198,
Any type of exercise that causes some resistance in that area. For example, walking with light leg weights, stair stepping, bicycling, etc.
Sincerely,
Rntdj
