Hey UG members who has trouble making their calves grow? I know I did for years. They are still not where I want them though. Watch the man himself show us a little trick for growing calves. I’ll be starting this today. John meadows is an awesome advocate in our sport. I’m going to be reaching out to him for a special Q&A session see if he will do this for us.
@PHD luckily mine always were proportionate with the rest of my growth
Mine are chicken sticks! I train them 6 days a week switching from heavy to low volume. Minimal growth noted…but it’s growth nonetheless
Gunna check this out later for sure. Ben Pak has a good calf routine too that’s pretty brutal. First time I did it I was sore for a week, no joke.
@calmb4dastorm I was same way. Try doing 3-4 days. And try this for 4 weeks. My calves use to be really stubborn but I finally broke their will lol
@Fitraver love Ben pak workouts he’s a beast. Hoping to get to his gym in Tampa soon
I will dial the training days down! Thank you
@calmb4dastorm keep us posted. I’ll shoot you some little tricks to help hit those trouble parts.
Will do! I’m redesigning my entire training regimen. I will be utilizing pyramid training to see how my response will be. My next cycle will be a long one…possibly 16 weeks. I have 16 weeks to make visible progress even with the barriers I face. I will keep you posted for sure!
@PHD just watched this. Never in my life seen a gym with that tibia thing hahahaha I’d love to know how many people on here even have a gym with one.
@Fitraver I’ve seen them at a lot actually. You can do the same exercise on a seated calf raise instead of putting ur toes on edge slide them all the way off with only ur heals on the platform and raise ur toes up to your shins and lower
I have not seen a tibialis anterior machine in any gym that I have been to. Ever! We have to use dumbbells or cables to work it out!
I’ve just never worked it out!! lol didn’t know it was a thing
@PHD I’ll try that thanks!!
Worked out at Mi40 when I lived in Tampa and got to meet the man himself, him and his trainers are insanely knowledgeable plus the equipment is top notch!!
I hear that place is awesome. I met Big Ben at nationals when I did it a few years ago. Super cool guy invited me to his gym. I lived in a different state then so never made it. I live 2 hours away now so hopefully one day I’ll head over there. My coach knows him pretty good.
I will meet you there I’ll have to train on the little boy bench but I’d still enjoy it lol
You guys should definitely let me know when you’re going, Get a good training sesh in. I’m always in Tampa.
I go to the crunch downtown Tampa when I meet my coach. It’s in the old powerhouse
I know exactly where you’re talking about, I’ll be there in December. I’ll hit you to see if you’re around
