  • Calves protocol + Urge to pee

    Hey all ! I really dont post often cause really.. i dont have much to contribute as far as bodybuilding knowledge is concerned here as opposed to many members ..

    BUT ! I had a question, more out of curiosity than anything.


    I noticed when doing my calves exercises (5secs negative 15secs hold) I always get an urge to pee in the middle of my set, even if I just went to the bathroom right before the set.

    I know for a fact other people are the same.

    I'm not concerned, at all, by this but was just wondering if someone could explain why it happens.. lol

    Well, I've got 3 reasons why that could happen.

    1) Urethral irritation
    2) Intra-abdominal pressure pressing on the bladder
    3) Benign prostatic hypertrophy (unlikely unless you're on roids)

      Yeah, better you feel like you need to pee than needing to poo like I do EVERY time I train calves. =D One of my training partners experiences similar issues. I'd have to agree and say abdominal pressure is the culprit. It's quite annoying and funny at the same time. The joys of training cows...

          Not that I don't like boobs, but that's definitely not a work-safe image.

            I have nightmares about frogs. Can we organize a mutual agreement?

                  I don't negotiate with amphibians.
                  On a more topical note, I just took someone through calves and they needed to both wee and poo. Consider yourself lucky if you only experience one.
