Playing along to Slayer always seemed to improve calf size as well. Toe-up double bass drumming is a pretty good calf workout I guess.
You know in all my years of playing drums, I only ever would get a burn in my tibialis, but never anywhere else in my lower legs. Didn’t seem to matter which technique I used either (toe-up vs heel-up).
I didn’t know you were a fellow skin beater, Vader!
Because I’m so awesome(not), I can play quads with one foot, and that I can can feel in the tibialis(lot of foot action there, it’s like alternating toe-heel doubles). But crazy death metal 32nds really burn up the vastus heads for me.
We will have to add a Guitar Center raid to the Test Fest events. You, Momma, Sen, and myself can go raise all kinds of hell.[/quote]
Yeah, I grew up playing drums. Played pretty seriously for about 10 years, but I’ve been living in apartments and condos for about the same amount of time, so I’ve been unable to have a kit. Drums aren’t exactly apartment or condo friendly. I have a practice pad kid that I screw around on from time to time, but it’s just not the same.
I don’t usually boast about being a drummer since it’s been so long since I’ve owned a kit and I suck compared to previous skill level. I’m kind of ashamed of letting it go so bad.
One of these days I’ll move into a house and then it’s on again. Until then, I’m thinking of taking up the bass.
