A few months ago there was a video circulating on social media of a “groundbreaking” new find that can boost metabolism just by doing something called the soleus push-up.

You know I was intrigued.

And the study was promising – research participants did show an improvement in local metabolism even for unfit volunteers.

But if something sounds too good to be true, chances are it probably is.

So are seated calf raises the key to improving blood glucose and improving metabolism? Could it be that simple?

I think you already know my answer 😉
