  • Lets talk calfs

    For you DC clients can you tell me how you work your calfs?

    higher reps, 5 second for the concentric and an ultra deep stretch for 15 seconds at the bottom of the reps. The whole set takes forever to do, but you'll learn to love it.

      PUMPED, Up on your toes at the beginning of the movement, and as Allen said, from top of movement to the bottom in 5 seconds and hold that stretch at the bottom for 15 seconds.

      We use the Leg Press, Slanted Calf Raise Machines, Standing, Seated, Hacks and even Smythe if you don't have any machines to use...

        How many approximate sets do you do for the calves if you do the 15 second stretch sets?

              TAS, look over DCs principles. You take three exercises for each muscle group that make you grow your best. You alternate those exercises each calf workout. For instance, say you pick Standing Calf Raises, Seated Calf Raises and Calf Raises on the Leg Press. 1st calf workout - Standing Raises
              2nd calf workout - Seated Raises
              3rd calf workout - Raises on Leg Press
              4th - Standing Raises, and it goes on and on like that until you are no longer gaining on an exercise. If you fail to meet your required rep range or if you did not increase weight twice in a row, then you will totally drop the exercise and sub in a new calf exercise the next rotation.
