8 Simple And Effective Calf Fat Reduction Exercises for Women

3. Seated calf raises:

How to do:

  • Sit in a chair with your legs bent at a 90-degree angle, feet flat on the floor.
  • Place a dumbbell in each hand (10 pounds or heavier; remember, your calves are strong enough to move your entire body’s weight around all day) and hold one on top of each knee.
  • Slowly squeeze your calf muscles as you raise up onto the balls of your feet (avoid bouncing up and down). Pause and slowly lower back down, without resting.
  • Repeat 15 or more times.

4. Skater Jump:

How to do:

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides.
  • Hop to right, landing on right foot while sweeping left foot diagonally behind right leg and swinging left arm across body and right arm behind back.
  • Jump to left, switching legs and arms to complete 1 rep.
  • Repeat for 1 minute.

5. Sumo Squat with Calf Raise:

How to do:

  • Stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart, toes slightly turned out, hands on your hips.
  • Bend your knees over your toes and lower your body into a squat.
  • Hold this position and lift your heels up (without raising your hips) and then press them back down.
  • Return back to the start. Do 10 reps.
  • Shake legs and stretch.
