Calves, the muscles on the lower leg, require lots of attention for maintaining a perfect body structure. A body with thinner calves won't look nice and also can lead to joint pains. There are many weight lifting exercises, with and without machines, which help in developing strong calves. Most of the existing weight lifting exercises for multiple muscles help much in building calf muscles as well.

One can start out with traditional weight lifting exercises like quats, lunges and calves raises. These can be done without the support of any machines to develop calf muscles. There are some machines as well, which can help you in improving the calf muscles.

An isolated weight lifting exercise targeted on calf muscles is seated and standing calves raises. It is advisable to carry out this with the help of a machine. Calf raises weight lifting exercises are extremely important, as these are the only kinds of trainings specifically targeted on calves and are in fact more than adequate to hit the calves.

  • Seated weight lifting exercises - Keep feet on calf block with arch and heel extending widely off while the pads just up from knees. Raise the heel in a way that ankles are extended as high as possible. Keep it in this posture for few seconds before lowering back down. This exercise hits soleus muscles.

  • Standing Posture - Keep the pads on shoulders and the feet on a calf block. Maintaining the arch and extending off, you slowly raise heel by widening ankle as high as possible. Keep it the body in this posture for few seconds before lowering down. This improves the gastrocnemius muscles.

    It is very important to pay attention to these weight lifting exercises. You can get some good advice from the experts in the fields. If you spend some time dedicated to the calves, you can achieve good calf muscles through the use of these weight lifting exercises.
