Weekly Tip

In order to achieve great diamond-cut calves, you’ve got to train them like you train the rest of your body…at least two times a week. The problem for most people is that calves are usually something they work last, like an afterthought just before heading out of the gym. You need to change that thought process, because calves will make your legs look awesome. Your calves are being used 90 percent of the day as you walk in daily life, so they can withstand a ton of pounding. The key (as with any other body part) is to throw something at it that will initiate a response. If you stack 200 pounds on the calf machine and pound out 3 sets of 15 reps, it’s not going to do a whole lot of good…especially if you weigh around 200 pounds. If you think about it, you’re moving that weight all day long, so where’s the challenge? You’re giving your calves no reason to adapt. Using heavy weight to work your calves is a must. Heavy weight primarily engages your fast twitch fiber, and will promote growth. As a rule, stack about double your body weight on the machine, and crank out between 15 and 20 reps per set, for 4 to 6 sets. Be sure to work calves every time you train legs, and don’t wait till the end of the workout to blitz them.
