    Re: What is the best way to grow calves?

    ill be honest i noticed a major change in size in my calves over the course of 6 months while training mma. I am gonna say it was two things, front and back sled pulls, and jumping rope. ive never got the burn like pulling a weighted sled backwards...damn it hurts. in the gym i just go super heavy on calves, hitting every angle, and pretty frequently

    Re: What is the best way to grow calves?

    This is the best exercise I've found for my calves... I call them Mrs. Smith's Donkeys... I can't find, nor do I want, a fat woman sitting on my back, so I use the smith to load up.

    Hey Z,
    Calves are a prob for lots of bros.
    I started my training to prepare as a boxer.
    With this I did tons of body weight calf work.
    Lots of lateral mvmts , jump rope and sparring.
    Now, as a BB, I realize the development came from training angles.
    If you want some serious stimulation try jumping rope for 6 3 min rds.
    U can also stim them from shadow boxing on your toes.
    Move in and out, then left to rignt then move in a square.
    By hitting all angles you will surely stim some add'l growth.

    Good luck
    Life

    Don't just do calf raises with toes pointed forward. Do you sets toes pointing forward, toes point out about 30 degrees, and in about 30 degrees. The actual amount is not that important, as long as it is comfortable and your toes are angle. You will hit the calf from all three sides. This really helps with growth.
