tsapfuldo​


means a person — particularly a woman — with chiseled calves; often a result of going to the gym on a regular basis whilst doing cardiovascular exercises e.g., running on the treadmill, cycling, mountain climbers, ankle hops, stair climbing, etc.

In some cases, wearing high heels every day to work or engaging in other pastimes (i.e., hobbies) such as dancing or hiking can also lead to one becoming a bona fide tsapfuldo fo' sho', umm... yeah.

Etymology​


Tsapfuldo is derived from a formal Shona root word stapfu which means the posterior part of your lower leg in English (or "calf") and it incorporates a slang-ified suffix "-ldo" that is pretty much used in a whole lotta Shonglish words e.g., mbingaldo, yekeldo, etc. The list is endless. Anyway, I suppose you get the idea, don't you?
