STRETCH OUT AND STRENGTHEN UP
DOWNWARD DOG FOR YOUR CALVES
KATE is known to be a yoga fan — which is a particularly good way to stretch and tone leg muscles, says Cheryl MacDonald who recommends downward dog for shapely calves.
‘Start on your hands and knees with your hands shoulderwidth apart and your knees hip-width apart,’ she explains. ‘Lift your hips up and back, straightening your legs as much as you can. Press your heels towards the floor to stretch your calves, and hold for five to ten breaths.’
For added calf toning, try ‘pedalling’ your legs by moving one heel towards the floor and then the other.
