So I've searched the forums and found threads concerning calf pain, as in injuries, but lately I've been getting alot of DOMS in my calves after squatting, rather than pain from say ligament damage or bad form or whatever. I'm doing the Rippetoe's. and I PR'd at 130Kg for 3 X 5, but I've felt the aching since about 110KG, which I'm now back down to, due to an illness which prevented me from training.
Anyway, my form is fine apparently, and I don't seem to be driving with my toes more than my heels, so I've no idea what it can be. That said, I don't get any DOMS in my hams or glutes, or if i do, not as much as with the calves, so it may be an isolation issue; maybe calves are getting used in there somewhere, I don't know.
If anyone can give me any suggestions I'd really appreciate it.
Oh, and I'm adhering to the program rigidly - I'm not adding any calf isolation work in there on the side, although, that may be be the answer to the issue itself.
