My Favorite Shoulder, Back and Calf Exercise…and Yes… Calf Exercise!

By on February 20, 2009

Stick Ups as they are so eloquently called (you’ll know why when you do them) are probably one of my favorite exercises to work your shoulders, upper back and…yes, calves.

The object of this exercise is to reach as high as you possibly can to the sky while you raise up on your toes… and repeat for as many as you can do. I know it seems to easy to be an effective exercise but I promise you…a pleasant surprise awaits you.

Stick ups (or Reach for the Sky) as I called them in my Boot Camps was a favorite of mine to really finish off the shoulders and to add a little more bang to the calves. This is the perfect body weight exercise to add to your home routine.
