I am relatively new to lifting, only about 3 months in. Over the past 3 weeks, I have been able to increase the weight on standing calf raises by 50lbs each week/workout. This is friggin insane. I was at 150lbs (smith machine) in late January, now I am at 250lbs for 4x6reps.
damn I wish my other lifts increased this much!
Maybe it has something to do with the muscle type in the calves?
I have a backround in intense cycling, so I wasn’t a slob before lifting.
