While your quads may be the more exciting leg muscles to train because of their size and strength, Arnold will be the first to tell you not to neglect your calves. When he first came onto the bodybuilding scene, his calves were a weak area for him, so he had to work doubly hard to bring them up. In fact, he cut off the bottoms of his training pants, so everyone—including Arnold himself—would know if he failed to bring up his calves.
"Ideally, your calf development should about equal the development of your biceps," he advises. "If your calves are smaller than your arms, then you need to give them extra attention."
