Calf muscles are one of the most commonly used everyday muscle groups in the human body. Every time you take a step and walk, you use the calf muscles. This muscle group will often work secondarily to the quadriceps or upper thigh muscles when performing exercises such as squats, lunges or leg presses, as well as jumping or jogging. It is important however to specifically train the calf muscles with its own specific exercises so that you can really build and strengthen the muscles to their full potential.
