Calves


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Calves within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: A lot has to do with genetics for this body part for the insertion of muscle and size-shape. But old school hammering them until you drop will also make them grow! How many days do you train them and what exercises do you like best/why? I hit them once a week with either seated, hack or donkey raises, I pick two exercises and vary the reps from 10-25...with about 8-12 working sets....

    Once a week for calves? Bicycle riding works best for me.

    Once a week for me as well. Sometimes seated hack, sometimes in a squat rack with a bar on my shoulders while standing on plates to get more heel drop

    I don't. No need as a strength athlete.

    For me, my calves started to grow when I started to increase my calf training to 3-4 days per week.
    Increased my weights, added a ton of DROPSETS, always going past COMPLETE MUSCLE FAILURE with every set. I always mixed my calf sets between very heavy weights, medium weight, light weights.

    The DROPSETS and SuperSets is what really help me the most. Also increased my healthy CARBS.

    Its a marathon not a sprint. Keep working at it and the results will come. Genetics play a part but you can always make gains!
