    Calfs--

    hey layne,

    my calfs suck. I'm 6'2 with 16'' calfs (high inserts too) and i'm a hardgainer. My diet/cardio/training (other than calfs) is going really well. I've been doing DC training for the past 2 years so (which is calfs every other workout for 1 set of 10-12 reps with a 5sec neg, 15sec stretch and a hard flex at the top)...

    this method isn't really doing much for my calfs (they have hardly grown in those 2 years whereas everything else has)

    can you please give me some advice AND post your calf training? i read that you like to do high volume for your calfs. Please list the training in detail (reps/sets/with what part of split/amount per week/tempo/etc)

    THANK YOU!
    calves are something extremely hard to grow... most people who have big calves... have always had big calves. Train them hard and heavy and like a made man. drop sets, super sets, giant sets, hard and heavy. I do over 30 sets per week for calves. my calves when i started were 11" now they are just under 17" not great, but a good improvement

    • Layne,
      How have you been? Hope your working hard here before finals. I had a question of clavicles. I always hear this and that about someone with wide clavicles and narrow clavicles but its hard for me to get an understanding on. Can you give me an example?
      Thanks, good luck with school.

        • I have always heard Cutler has wide clavicles and Phil Heath has narrow clavicles. What is the difference? Thanks.

              • just got done writing a grant and starting another one. At this point it is not school, it is the research which is time consuming. I am traveling pretty much every weekend and when i'm not, i'm filming for my show/DVD plus trying to plan a wedding. I'm pretty much at my wits end

                      • Layne,

                        When you are dieting down for a show, how often are you spiking your calories/refeeding and by how much?

                        Do you spike it if you notice your metabolism slowing down or do you have a certain schedule such as 3 low days followed by 1 spike?

                          Layne....it is amazing that you can do all that you are doing and still manage to answer everyone's questions you are A WIZARD!

                              • Hey Layne, do you train when your sick? I've got shoulders to train today, and I'm not sure if I should tough it out, or take the day off. I felt a cold coming on about 36 hours ago, I'm kinda congested right now, and just feeling a little lethargic and lightheaded. I've been worse, but I just want to know if training would be counter productive at this point. Can you build muscle while being sick if you back it up with solid nutrition and sleep?
