Hello to everyone,
please excuse my english.
I'm the typical tall-with-no-calves guy.
For the last 3 months, I gained 6,5 Lbs of bodyweight and trained my calves EVERY workout. That means 3 to 4 times a week. I have NEVER skip one session.
I train them day 1, day 2, day 1, day 2, etc...
My schem is based on CT's routine :
DAY 1 :
Standing calf raise
2 sets of 6-8 reps with your feet neutral
2 sets of 6-8 reps with your feet turned out
2 sets of 6-8 reps with your feet turned in
I start each rep from a hold in the stretched position
DAY 2 :
Seated calf raise
Reps: 10 with your feet turned in, 10 with your feet neutral, and 10 with your feet turned out
Note that each set has a total of 30 reps.
I start each rep from a hold in the stretched position and hold the peak contraction for two seconds.
In 3 months, I gained...0,20 inches :-/
Any advice ?
I gained some bodyweight, and though this should help.
I never skip one calf session.
I sometimes use 'double-pop' to continue increasing the weight each workout.
...And my calves are still lagging.
