Spotlight On...
CALVES
These hardworking muscles power your legs, so the stronger they are, the longer you’ll be able to run, dance, and [insert your favourite workout here] before tiring out. They also increase the sexy factor of stilettos and skirts. Your calf comprises the gastrocnemius muscle, which originates at the femur, and the soleus, which attaches at the top of your fibula and tibia; together they connect at the top of your Achilles to help point your foot. You can strengthen your calves with targeted exercises like standing raises, but be sure to do stretches and use a foam roller too: Tight calves (a common side effect of wearing high heels) can exacerbate shin splints and lead to Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, or a tear.

You Ate It? Negate It!
No, you don’t have to work off every morsel you eat. But before you indulge, consider how much effort it would take to cancel out the calories.
