Anyone Tried Waterbury High Frequency?


#1

I was thinking of trying it. I was just wondering why he chose to include calf raises every time you work out. Doesn't seem like a very effective exercise compared to compund movements. Other than that it looks pretty solid. Are the calf raises really that important?

Thanks.


#2

Yes, they are.


#3

They are important if you want your calves to grow bigger. Unless you're one of those guys whose calves grow from mowing the damn lawn. lol


#4

It's a good program.

I'm a fan of either high frequency or high volume.

Go do it


#5

I'm one of those guys :slight_smile:


#6

if you want to grow calves you gotta train calves and they need a high volume high intensity approach

I have these calves. I don't train them, they grow like weed from raw milk.

I like them, they're awesome! And when I do calf raises (with straight arms, like lateral raises) I get nice burn in my middle delts and traps too.

Oh, and if you raise a calf, you'll have a cow which will give you milk. And Milk makes EVERYTHING grow.

So yes, calf raises are quite important. :o)

I disagree. Personal opinion so don't get offended as i know a lot of people in the forums do.

I like the high frequency approach.....


#9

calf is singular and calves are plural......

could be wrong.... both both are correct spelling for the lower leg muscles

since this quickly became a calve training thread let me throw out a question.
I have the flat feet and or am Flat footed, anywho doing most calve exercises cause extreme burning in the arch mainly. Any suggestions on how to make em grow. I use the LAC ball on em n stretch no help though.
