Just a quick question about training calves if anyone would kindly give some advice if able.
I naturally have small calves so have been focusing on them more than most more genetically blessed guys probably do. This is my calf workout;
4 Sets - Seated Calf Raise
4 Sets - Reverse Calf Raise
8 Sets - Standing Calf Raise (5 heavier weight lower reps, last 3 lower weight higher reps)
I do this twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. I have seen definite progress in both size and definition - not a massive improvement at all but definitely still something, albeit over quite a long period of time (around 6 months). I’m now concerned I might be doing more than is necessary, or even worse killing some gains by overtraining. This is because after doing some research most sample workouts/articles about calves I’ve came across recommend less sets (most say something like just 3 seated sets, 3 standing sets). On the face of it, it would seem I’m doing too many sets.
Do you guys think I would be just as well off, or even better off, doing less sets? And input appreciated. Thanks.
