Ell, years ago you wrote an article for Weider on a calf routine. “Twisting Calf Routine”. On the multi exerciser with the hip belt. First set, start at the bottom, weight on the outside of the feet, up in 2, weight on the front toe, down in 4. Fail, then, bend at the waist, second set ASAP. Fail, then use the pull up bars for negatives. Shake the calves out, repeat, only this time 1 up/2 down cadence.
One day, I hadn’t done it for months, did it on a Sunday morning. Monday, got up, got on bus for an hour commute, could not stand up straight my calves had locked up so bad. Got to work, working with orthopedic surgeons at the time, they dragged me into an exam room for the students and residents to poke, prod, test.
So at least it wasn’t for nothing;)
