So to make a long story short. I have been hearing about squeezing your calves for 4 seconds and come down for 4 seconds rinse repeat.
Since gyms are funky now. I just workout at home I like it a lot!
So I heard people preaching that simple calf raises body weight on a stepper is enough.
So I did that but I also did one foot at a time. I would squeeze the ever loving day lights out them barely any rest. I could start with 15 reps then after 3 sets or 4 calves can barely get 8 that’s when I stopped.
When I went to see the pump (the glory of God’s creation) I flexed to see the cuts and lines and then pop
I quickly stopped doing anything the pain didn’t hurt at first. But when I got home I noticed the soles of my feet are swollen and when I walk I can’t walk with that injured foot straight. No discoloration nothing like that.
Never had this before I have been extremely sore barely able to walk but never strain on calves above all.
Two questions out this story.
What happens after it heals if ever? Does the body now realize calves need to be bigger adter this trauma? Or will they just atrophy and I have to start over, or?
Experiences whatever is welcome. Thank you all safe wishes.
Edit: forgot to mention I’m 6’3 270 pounds right now.
