: : : : I have a serious calf problem no matter what I do, I cant seem to put any
: : : : size on my calves. I heard from somewhere that if you shoot Winstrol
: : : : in your calves it may help them grow. If anybody has had experience
: : : : with this please let me know or any other kind of advice would be appreciated.
: : : : Thanks

: : : Unless you are genetically gifted, which it doesn't
: : : sound so, you are pretty much hooped. Luckily I
: : : received the genes that able me to have ripped 18"
: : : calves without doing any work to them. (It looks
: : : kind of funny because my quads only measure 25").
: : : Anyways, I tell everybody the same thing when they
: : : ask me what I do. I tell them that they are not going
: : : to grow substantially (unless you use some AS, but
: : : even still the results won't stay to long after
: : : coming off them) so work them like you want to get
: : : them as ripped as possible. When this occurs, they
: : : may grow a little bit, but if they are ripped they
: : : usually look bigger anyways. Try this routine for
: : : about a month and see what happens:
: : : Standing Calf Raise @ 100 lbs
: : : Single Leg Calf Raises @ bodyweight
: : : Seated Calf Raises @ 90 lbs.
: : : Do one set of each exercise without resting.
: : : Rest about 1 minute and do it again.
: : : Rest and repeat one last time.
: : : Keep the weight the same each time.
: : : Good luck
: : : Calfman.
: Someone who is "genetically" challenged should probably
: get training advice from someone else in the same
: boat that has made progress. Calfman is genetically
: blessed and would have big ripped calves from just
: putting on his shoes (no offence here calfman). The
: routine suggested seems a bit light to me and I also
: agree with Animal about doing some heavy negatives.
