Stretch Your Calves
It’s a good idea to warm up before putting your calves to the test. Stretching them out is a way to ensure that cramps don’t plague you after the workout. Try to start your leg training by simple exercises to warm the muscle up, you could skip a little or run to get your body amped up for the killer workout. You want to make sure your muscles can be pulled and pushed without getting injured, what better way than making them warm up a bit to increase elasticity.
In order to get bigger calves, it will benefit you from stretching at the end of the lift. You can contract the muscle and keep it like that for a while to induce strain and fatigue. Calf raises are a great way to train the muscle and ensure high reps to failure which will really help you increase mass there.
Train Your Calves Daily
Keeping a leg day out for your beloved calves won’t do you any good if you neglect them completely every other day. Try working on them daily to increase muscle. You could do it right after you train your chest or back and can even do it in the comfort of your home. Try doing calf raises to complete 4 sets of 10-12 reps.
Repeat this technique daily and there is no way you won’t get the killer calves you want. However, keep a variety of exercises included because overtraining from one kind is possible.
