Day 51: Calves at work
by AccountingWEB on
Exercising your calves provides better support for the upper body. This exercise works on strengthening your calves, which provides greater endurance for many forms of exercise as well as normal day-to-day walking around. According to the Web site, Hot Exercise for Life, working out the legs can increase the body's growth hormone potential, which can have an effect on increasing muscle growth throughout the body.
