What gets me is how damn difficult some people in this particular forum make it to actually share useful information.
'Genetics' don't affect calves more than any other bodypart - it is just that it is noticed more. This blanket statement could be repeated hundreds of times for each and every individual skeletal muscle in the body.
While i agree with those who say many of us over complicate things - this is over simplified to the greatest degree.
This technique - if you can even call it that, as it is so vague - will only work for those who are blessed in the area of calf development. For most others it takes a hell more; trying new things - quite unlike any other bodypart IME.
Most find high intensity, high load, high volume, low rest work most useful. Myself included and as i said i am fairly well developed in the area.
And this is truly the cherry on top of a crap post. I like calf raises and do one version or another every time i train my calves, but by suggesting that this is all one needs is... simply put, bollocks.
Thanks for that. You have truly defined genetics in bodybuilding there.
You will find this true of every muscle in every creature on the planet. Sure, you can argue you aren't wrong - but neither are you accurate, useful, polite or educated in the area.
Maybe you could count to 10 the next time someone makes a post that isn't relevant to you personally - as it is to a vast majority of people.
Bodybuilding is about building your body, not building your body ONLY with certain equipment in certain ways - whatever works is fine, and actually recommended periodically.
