If you want to have a good looking physique, it needs to be well-balanced across all muscle groups.
Which means that every muscle should be equally developed.
Sadly, this is not the case for many people.
In every gym, you're going to see dozens of people with imbalanced muscle groups.
One muscle in particular tends to be underdeveloped in most people.
So much so that many of them started to believe it was because of their genetics.
I'm talking about calves....and if you were wondering who's calf is featured on the photo? That's mine! Photo taken 3/8/23 the walkway to my home!
If you're only doing calf raises once a week, chances are that your calves aren’t nearly as strong as they could be.
In this post, I'm going to give you a couple of tips to build bulging calves that will make other bodybuilders look like they're skipping leg day.
The first rule is to treat calves just like any other muscle.
This means you should train them at least twice per week while employing a variety of exercises.
- Elevated calf raises
- Jump rope
- Single-leg calf raises
- Bent-knee calf raises
- Farmer walks
- Use heavy weights on day 1, and aim for high volume on day 2.
- The first workout should consist of 4 sets with 8-10 reps in each set.
- The second should include 3 sets with 20-30 reps in each set.
