Instructions:

1. Find some stairs. Actually, just one stair or a curb will do.2. Turn so you're facing down the stairs. Scoot forward until just your heels are on the stair, with the rest of your foot hanging off (you can hold a wall or railing for balance).3. With your legs straight, point your toes downward as far as you can, then lift them up as far as you can. Repeat.4. Use a timer. Do as many as you can in 30 seconds. Do them rapidly, but with full extension and flexion.5. After 30 seconds, bend your knees at a 45-degree angle (about half way). Without pausing to rest, do another 30 seconds of flexing in that position. That's one complete set. If it burns like hell, then you're doing it correctly.6. Rest for a minute or two, then do another set—30 seconds with the legs straight, immediately followed by 30 seconds with the knees bent. Rest for a another minute, and repeat the two-part set.7. Each day, do three of these two-part sets. The total daily routine includes 6 30-second sessions.

That's it. Toe raises. You think I'm crazy. That's fine. Try it. I've been spreading this wisdom for the past ten years like some kind of Johnny Shin Splint-seed and it has worked for literally everyone. I'm eager to hear the results from a larger sample size (that's you, dear readers).

Small losses....
Starvation mode is a myth. There has never been proof of it. When calories are controlled(deficit), fat loss is inevitable. 2 lbs. is completely fine in 3 weeks. Given the same caloric intake and p ...
