So evidently it appears I am not genetically gifted when it comes to calve growth. I have researched the topic and haven't yet found a routine that works for me. Can someone please give me an insight into how they have faced this challenge??
well im gifted in calves but high rep movements work well for me. jumping rope made a difference for me as well
I've had issues with calf growth in the past when I used to try to exercise them to make them grow. What I found most effective was making sure I got a full stretch during the motion as well as positioning my feet in such a way that I used mostly the thick muscle in the calf to move. Also, back in the day running hills also helped my calves grow, but I haven't done any degree of running for more than 10 minutes since '10.

I'm going to add in don't lock yourself to high reps only. Calves are mixed muscle fibers, so you'll get more growth if you do both some heavy weight low rep work as well as lighter weight high rep work.
