T. believes that squats are enough to get big calves
Load a barbell and do some fucking calv raises.
Everybody wants big calves but nobody wants to skip and do hill sprints
This. You dont grow calves by lifting, you grow them walking a shit fucking load of slopes
Maybe they would grow if you actually did calf raises. You don't even need to be at the gym to do them, just do calf raises on a set of stairs.
Can relate i have 38 cm calves while having 36 cm forearms and 42cm in biceps
>this muscle that I've used since birth with an insane high tolerance won't grow
Perhaps you should actually tax it 4 sets full ROM won't do the job calves recover in like 1 minute they can take a beating
Do donkey calf raises or leg press calf raises where you let your hip angle bend a lot. Your gastocnemius gets stretched even more if you are bent at the hip, also get into a super deep stretch like using a block for the front of your foot.
just be ex-fat
Run on your toes and stop posting the same thread every week
>slow speed like 7km/h
>walk for like 30 mins
There easy calf gainz and pretty decent cardio too
>muscles that have been in continuous use for virtually your entire life
>people expect them to suddenly decide to grow because they do a few calf raises once a week
End every exercise with a 20 minute shoeless jog and lets see if these fuckers can stay the same size for long
>have to stand 8h at work
>standing desk at home
>leg day not even once
>calves are bigger than popeye's forearms
Now if there was a trick to do the same shit with lats.
Climbing. this is my back unflexed before I started lifting.
not enormous but decent size (I think)
>autistically tap legs all the time
>have big calfs
not saying this is why but there may be a connection
For a few years I thought I was "hitting calves" doing 3x12 or whatever every session and it didn't do shit. Well I finally decided to put some actual effort in and at the gym and now I start at 200lbs on the machine and do 12 on that and then 12 on every weight under it in the 5lbs increments. And then on rest days I do 3 or so sets of 50 unweighted reps on my stairs or whatever ledge I got. For the first time in my life they've been sore and felt actually fatigued. It's been said so many times before but you really do gotta beat them down pretty hard I feel like. They do support you standing/walking all day so you've gotta hurt them more than that does.
Heavy farmer's Walks
Hit the bike ya fucking retards
just be morbidly obese for 10 years then lose it
Start wearing barefoot shoes and have good form. You'll be unable to make them not grow. Unfortunately you can't change your insertions
I have low calf inserts, which supposedly means I have good calf genetics. So why are they still fucking tiny? Will they get big if I train them?
just do bricklaying
