🔥 CALF TRAINING DAYS
✔️ A straight-leg position (i.e. standing calf raise or calf press on leg press) has been shown to produces greater muscle activation in the gastrocnemius (upper part of the calves) than in the soleus (lower part of the calves), while the bent-leg position (90 degrees) produces great muscle activation in the soleus than in the gastrocnemius.
⚠️ A poor way to train lagging calves is to only train them once a week at the end of an exhausting leg day. Consider increasing the training frequency to at least 2 times per week, and prioritizing them by training first, or earlier in your exercise order instead of last.
