🔹 Calf Training by @workout_cross 🔹
Being stuck in team no-calves really sucks. Yes, it’s right - genetics plays a big role. But maybe your technique isn’t as good as it should be, so you will never reach your fulllest potential.
So what should you do?
❌ DON’T BOUNCE THE WEIGHT: A really common mistake is not controlling the movement. If you start to bounce, your achilles will do most of the work, which is not the purpose of the exercise.
🧠 FOCUS ON MIND MUSCLE CONNECTION: Thinking into your calves can help to fully contract the calf muscles.
✔️ INCREASE FREQUENCY: The calves are a muscle that recovers relatively fast. Training them more frequently 3-4 times a week will help.
⏸ PAUSE AT THE BOTTOM: Thus you will be able to work with your calf muscles only.
🦶🏻 BALANCE WEIGHT ON THE BIG TOE: In order to fully contract the calf, it’s absolute necessary to focus on this point.
Furthermore you should increase your sets, doing only 3 sets two times per week is definitely not enough volume to grow your calves. Anything from 12-20 sets per week should be fine.
