Calves are a pet problem for most people and the reason is this: it is very difficult to grow your calves. They are genetically "designed"" to be a specific size and it is difficult to improve them. The best advice I can give you is to do all the known calf exercises faithfully in the gym and to be very patient.

These exercises include: seated and standing calf raises, donkey calf raises as well as one legged dumbbell calf raises.

Keep well,
