Sup guys, new guy here, been reading the articles for a while from T Nation and finally decided to join the community.
I have a problem that i would like to share with you all incase you have ever encountered anything similar or even better know a possible cause for the problem.
Ok without wasting any time, the problem is plantarflexion when i do calf raises. For this reason i don’t really train my calves, and i feel it’s a shame as it’s a bodypart i really need to improve on.
Basically, whenever i do calf raises, whatever the weight, after a few reps, around my ankle and foot feels to be burning up, and just in general aching, and it’s a shame because i can never workout efficiently as the pain overlaps any feeling of the muscle getting worked. For example if i were to do toe raises with a plate (dorsiflexion), i don’t really notice the problem, and i can actually feel the muscle working which is a better feeling than feeling pain and aches.
I already am working on ankle mobility, and i have good mobility, but the problem is still there, im thinking it could be due to a knee problem im having, can elaborate if it’ll help, thanks.
Hope this is the right section
