          lmfao.....



          OK well for shit's I'll tell you guys what I did to put an inch on mine in a month. I rarely train my calves because everyone in my family was just lucky in that deparment I guess.

          Here's what I did and do when/if I train them:

          Toe press superset with seated raises:

          2 warm up sets with both for 20-25 reps each.

          Pyramiding up in weight for the first 3 sets and then back down for 3 more on both movements followed by 10-15mins on the tread mill at a midium pace at max incline to pump as much blood as possible into them and just burn them totaly out, then stretch the shit out of them for a few minutes and call it good. I do this after quads/hams, but when I was trying to put some meat on them I did them 2-3x a week after whatever bodypart I trained that day.

          It looked something like this:
          Toe press: 400lbs,20/ 500lbs,20/ 600lbs,20/ 500lbs,20/ 400lbs,20/ 300lbs to failure
          Seated Raises: 3 plates 15-20/ 4 plates 15-20, 5 plates 15-20/ 4 plates 15-20/ 3 plates 15-20/ 2 plates to failure
          15 mins on the treadmil at max incline 4.0 miles per hour
          Static stretches for 30 seconds each 3 sets

          The next time I'd hit them I would do the same in revers order with twice the weight in the 8-12 rep range.

          Just doing your cardio at the max incline after all your WO's will put some extra size on them too.

          It doesn't take anything really at all for mine to grow so I may train them once a month or so unless I'm trying to get them silly stupid

              A friend of mine has 19.5" calves and never worked them a day in his life. Yes I'm jealous. His forearms are the same way. It's crazy how some are born with it and others aren't.

                Extremely high volume has always worked well for me. My calves are very high, so every little bit of size matters. Training sessions with 100s of reps have worked in the past.

                  Same here, high volume with several drop set's thrown in to the mix. Works for me!

                      Simple, a high rep day and a low rep day. Training more then 2x a week is terrible advice, best to take the advice of people who have made changes to terrible body parts and ignore the genetically gifted because they never had to work hard for anything in their lives.

                            I was lucky to be born genetically great calves.

                            And that said, I hit 'em like there is no tomorrow.

                                I've been doing superset exercises for strengthening my calves, I've experienced that posture plays a major role while doing such exercises.
