  • Calf lifts

    What is your favorite Calf lift? I would really like to build up the size of my calf and have been unsuccessful so far, I get stronger but not bigger. I realize it may be more vanity than anything else but I guess I am vain.

    Neither of us train our calves, sorry dude.

    I suppose bodybuilders seem to like doing heavy calf raises. Maybe try those?

      What i've read and heard is the calves, respond poorly to strength training . It's more either you got calves or you dont.

        Different angels with the calf raises works good but it takes a while before it shows.
        Heavy ass farmers walk and yoke carry if you have access to the equipment works your calfs good too. Even if it isn't the main goal for those exercises.

          I have heard the same. I just refuse to believe that I am stuck with toothpicks. I may never have calves like Arnold but I should be able to build them up like anything else.

            This. Heavy carries will work your calves like no tomorrow. Carry a sandbag or keg and you've got yourself one heck of a bicep workout too. And they'll give you massive traps.
