How I Grew Bigger Calves (WITH BAD CALF GENETICS!)

There’s THREE major tips that you’ll want to incorporate if you’re trying to build calves the size of baby cows

Firstly, train them. Despite the simplicity of this tip, a lot people are under the assumption that calf growth is 100% dependent on genetics. And while genetics will play a role in muscular shape and size potential, they do not default a muscle to being unchangeable. Therefore you can grow any muscle you choose to place under stress.

Secondly, focus on tempo. It’s everything when it comes to calf training. Bouncing up and down on the seated calf raise is great… if you want to waste your goddamn time. Not so good for growing calves. Slow everything down! Enabling a complete stretch down the bottom, coming to a pause, and then exploding up using the calf muscle.

Last, but not least, frequency! It’s a common misconception for people to train their calves every single day. If you’re actually training them hard, it’s not plausible. I’d recommend 2-3x per week of proper calf training. Incorporating a combination of low heavy reps, and high lighter reps. Variance is key. Most importantly – don’t use a weight you can’t handle.

Drop your ego at the door and focus in on HOW you’re lifting the weight, rather than HOW much

    Your legs are insane, especially the calves. My gym just opened back up so I’m only just now starting to have a ‘real’ leg day again, but damn. Hopefully someday my legs can look like your’s!

    Thank you, I’ve been working on my calfs and I will admit they are definitely not my priority in terms of what muscle I want to grow. However you’ve now inspired me to work on them more so thank you again

    I mix in plyometrics with calve training. Probably the one part of your body you DON’T want to train your mind in going slow. But, just my opinion. I play a lot of sports so I want that explosiveness.
