-Work calves twice a week
-Only do one-legged calf raises the first day each week
-Only do donkey calf raises the second calf workout of the week
Week 1 (take it easy)
|Day 1||3 X maximum reps with no dumbbell to start with. Begin with left leg first, perform a full set and then do the same number of reps with the right leg.|
|Day 2||3 X 30 reps donkey calf raise with someone fairly light on your back.|
|Day 1||3 X 20 reps using a light weight in which it only allows you to easily complete 20 reps for the first set. Then use a weight that will barely let you complete 20 for the last 2 sets.|
|Day 2||3 X 20 reps using somebody of moderate weight on your back|
|Day 1||3 X 20 reps but add five pounds and really try to exceed 20 reps with outstanding form|
|Day 2|| 3 X 20 reps have someone hold weight while they are on your back for added resistance.
*Now at the end of each set creep in burns or partials in a slow non-rhythmic fashion until failure.
You have to lock yourself into the pain and savor it.
