5 Easy Tips to Grow Bigger Calves | TRAINING

Your calves are burdened all day long. How? By carrying around your bodyweight. Every time you take a step, they are activated. This means that you must make them get bigger and stronger.

 

But did you know, most people believe calves are resistant to growth? That's not entirely true at all! Well, the usual training just won't do when it comes to calves and maybe perhaps it's the reason why many think calves can't be made bigger and stronger.

So to do that, we've put together five unique methods to wake-up those calf muscle fibers and prompt them to grow.

 

Tip #1 

Train your calves on a daily basis for a period of 2-4 weeks before resuming your normal program. Doi a different exercise each day using about 4-6 sets per workout.

 

Tip #2

Do a set of 100 slow, hard-squeezing standing calf raises every night before you go to bed. Use just your bodyweight on top of your normal program to go for maximum burn!

 

Tip #3

Ballet dancers often have awesome calves. Go and imitate their moves. Walk around on your tiptoes rather than your flat feet wherever possible. 

 

Tip #4

Do a calf raise up each step every time you encounter a staircase. Step onto the ball of your foot on the way down. This will act almost like a plyometric (jump training) movement for your calves.

 

Tip #5

Try doing two calves workouts per week with weights. This will train fibers that are probably missed out by conventional workouts. For calf weight training, perform one with very light weights for sets of 25-50 reps, and one with very heavy weights for sets of 4-6 reps.

 

Tip #6 - Bonus!

If your feet can handle it, train calves in your bare feet! It will increase the range of motion and force intense contraction for any calf movement.

 

Conclusion – Need Help?

Before anything else, keep in mind that it's possible to over-train your calves, which won't contribute to growth. To avoid this, pick two or three items from the above list. Don't use all of these methods at once and change things up every few weeks.
