You’ll find out how to do calf raises the right way and why they are so effective. We will make sure that you do not experience calf cramps and workout your calves safely. A short warm-up to stretch your leg muscles and get the blood flowing for best results. Losing weight in a week is not an easy task, especially if you are not considering on changing up your meal plan. Your diet is the key to achieving a desirable effect on your legs.
Part 1: Your weight loss motivation.
Sometimes you will want to do something but as soon as you put your mind to it, you lose all motivation and interest.
There is a simple explanation to this dilemma. I go in detail about it, and how you can use it to step over this barrier and continue to move forward when everything else “seems” lost.
The blog post bellow will guide you through.
Part 2: Diet vs. Exercise
There is this idea floating on the web that you can exercise more and lose weight even if you continue eating foods high in processed sugar and fats.
This is a big, big lie.
Imagine you are eating 5.000 Calories a day, your body naturally burns around 2.000-2.500 Calories a day.
You are gaining 2.500-3.000 Calories a day.
You do the meanest, most badass workout you can find on the internet and burn 2.000 Calories a day.
You will still be gaining at least 500 Calories a day. But will you be able to do that extreme workout everyday? You can ask any professional athlete, doctor, anyone in the medical or sports field, that it’s just impossible.
Sure your body will adapt and you will build huge muscle that will burn even more calories, but do you want to look like the Hulk? Even if you do, this is in no way healthy or recommended.
On the other hand.
Dieting can help you achieve weight loss without exercising. But it also comes with a downside.
A good looking toned body, looks good when you work it even in the slightest.
The need for exercising to lose weight is minimal, but if you want fast results, an intense cardio session can make wonders.
My conclusion for part 2 is that you need to combine both world for the best results for a one week weight loss session.
Do not underestimate the power of dieting and exercising combined for short periods of time.
Part 3: What is the best exercise for calves?
Isolated Calf Raise by Far!
This is an isolation exercise, which means you are mostly using only one muscle to do this exercise and that is your calf.
This exercise is very easy to do.
A short video will show you all the juice.
If you don’t have weight at home, grab a few shopping bags put some books into them and go at it.
Do 4-5 Sets every day. End the set when you start to feel your calves burn hot.
You don’t want to overdo it because we want to exercise the whole week everyday so you shape the muscle.
Combining the motivation, dieting, and exercising you will get more than satisfactory results by the end of your week.
Discipline yourself for one week and you will not want to go back to your regular lifestyle.
What to do now?
This is different for everybody.
You need to do some research. Takes 5 seconds lol.
- Check your food and drinks nutrition values.
- Make time for a 30 minute workout.
- See a doctor. (this part might take longer than 5 seconds)
Check your food and drinks nutrition values.
You need to eliminate processed foods and sugar from your diet. Yeah, it is that radical.
For one week you drink only water or infused water, depending on the preference. The food you eat must be natural.
It must be directly from nature. No sausages, no canned food, no sugary drinks, no pastries or sweets of any kind.
It would be even better if you would chose to go vegan on your one week journey.
Make sure you count your calories, and remember the less calories you eat and the more you burn the faster are the results.
Make time for a 30 minute workout.
10 minutes of warming-up and 20 minutes of working on your calves.
There is nothing complicated, you don’t need a whole routine to workout your calves.
Here is a simple warm-up for your lower body.
Now after you do the warm-up you want to do 4-5 sets of Calf Raises.
Remember the how to do a calf raise video from above?
It might take you 1-2 minutes to do a set with a 1 minute rest.
This short workout will help you burn calories, melt fat, and shape your calf muscle. You will see by the end of the week.
See a doctor.
Now if you have any kind of issues, I advise you to see a doctor that can shed light on your problems.
This is not an easy task.
The second day you will wake up and see how hard it really is.
The 3rd day it will be worse.
But not impossible in any way shape or form.
Stay strong, stay disciplined, stay strong to your goals.
You can do it.
