Sajjad asks the Guru how to strengthen his calf muscles… answer calf raises!

June 18, 2015

Please can you tell me what I need to do to make my calf muscles strong as they get pulled so easily while playing cricket.

Calf raises!

Stand on a step on 1 leg. Heel hanging over the step and go up onto tip toe, then slowly lower down.

If you can do 50 of these – you’re rocking the strength vibe and perhaps it’s something else.

Do it with a straight knee and with a bent knee.
