Hello everyone. So I have always had bad calves genetics period.
Encase some wonder wtf that means. Basically means you have an abnormal time growing your calves. Besides that Calves is the slowest growing muscle out there. You got guys with 20+ arms but barely got 18 to 17 inch calves and that isn’t even contest ready…
Well like always training my calves never growing just sitting there. I remmeber training my calves everyday for a whole month straights. They barely grew 1cm… Talk about failure genetics.
Well I was sitting on my bed and noticed something werid. My right calf is bigger than my left calf.
Keep in mind I was sore but that never means anything for growth just a good claves workout.
My right was way more sore than my left. I wondered hmm let me stretch the left to give it a burn to match. Jesus Christ did it hurt. I noticed the left was way more tigher than the right.
So I stretched the left only everyday for a good week. Lo and behold my calf grew and matched my right or so close to it.
This is a reason why stretching them after is better after seeing this. They grew 3cm from all that… Ans believe me go ahead and stretch your calves. I really mean stretch it each second stretch it harder and harder. Your calves will litterly shake like crazy. Even by stretching them with weight with calves exercises… Trust me this is 100 times worse.
I am so sure that if everyone else did the samething their calves would grow better and catch up with the dominant one.
Measure both your calves, see which one is bigger. So the one that is smaller stretch that calf and only that calf for a whole week. Really stretch that calf. 3 set of 30 seconds and 5 to 6 second rest from the pain of stretch rinse and repeat.
I truly feel I will help us all no calves starving men out there. Try it out yourself. Update if it worked or not or if someone already agrees and has done it already.
The calves stretch I did: 1. Stand near a wall with one foot in front of the other, front knee slightly bent.
Keep your back leg straight, your heel on the ground and lean toward the wall.
Hold for 30 seconds and make sure each second you bend your head forward this will light the stretch on those like no other calvea exercise can do. You have my word this might save you guys.
