Here's to a good Redemption!! (even though you cannot drink yours) Wish you well. I tend to fall off like that... usually 2-3 times a year.
BTW Mullet, change your avatar back to something Mullety. That one kinda freaks me out...

So...what's up with calves huh? Do you wear triple socks so they look bigger? You know you can't get calf implants...I mean, all the cool guys are doing it nowadays. Also, sometimes people tape bibles to their calves while doing calf raises....it may just work...Probably not. LOL...
But really, welcome back! What kind of split and lifting philosphy are you going off of?
I'm about to start up DC myself. Good to see you back.

The one thing that all of us have to be reminded of is that life happens and all of this persuance of strength and size is just a far second or third or fourth priority to many things. Hang in there Crowler.
Good luck Jminis

yeah i saw that in the steriods section that's great man! some buddies of mine have been down there and said it was super dope
finals ended up well .. it was working this summer that really kept me from posting and lifting .. just not enough hours in the day
08-10-2006, 07:10 PM
Ex, I'm not shaven like Glen.. But we both wear man-tights... really really tight ones...ballsquishers we like to call 'em.
Glenihanichaun... a warm welcome to you my little student of jurisprudence. You have been missed.

Hey glen you mind adding what your diet is too? Im interested to see what that is as well as the workout schedule (got that from the other thread posted in here).
08-11-2006, 01:00 AM
Hey Glen, lifts are lookin' good for a month off. Still strong.
BTW, have you ever tried hitting 3x/wk on calves? I know that Layne Norton used to be stick-legs norton and he was never able to pack some mass on his legs (in his words) until he hit them 3x/wk high volume. (He's heading a forum at BodyBuilding Dungeon - Bodybuilding Pictures and Forum which is AM.com's sister site now--bobo is buying more e-real estate).
Worth lookin' in to. I'm not gonna give beelzeboob the hints though b/c he's so big he makes me look stupid and I have to keep him down somehow So, make sure than when your calves are 20" you keep beelzeboob out of the loop.

diet on training days
9am - 1 cup oats, 10 egg whites, water (blended)
11am - 1 cup oats, 2 scoops whey (pre wo)
1pm - 1 cup oats, 2 schoops whey (post wo)
3pm - 2 whole wheat english muffins, 1 can chicken
6pm - 2 whole wheat english muffins, 1 can tuna
9pm - enough peanuts to give me 30g fat, 1/2 can chicken
bedtime - 2 scoops casein, enough peanuts to give me 30g fat
kwycke -- at this point i'll try anything with calves .. i'll start working them each workout for a while and see how that goes
08-11-2006, 09:59 AM
If you give something like that a shot, lemme know how it goes.
As soon as I can get my diet back on I'm gonna try 3x/wk on my triceps to see if it helps. My triceps = Glens calfs.

unlawful jackass. i've tried 3x week and up to 6x a week with varying rep schemes including stretches. the only time i noticed any true difference was when i had an excessive amount of time off. i would do my usual heavy calf workout and the next day, while at home, i would throughout the day do max sets of BW calf raises on the step. i would try to total 1000 before the day was over. after a couple weeks, they had gone up 1/4". now, i'm not saying i gained 1/4" of muscle, but there was definately to be learned there. high volume, high frequency may be the way to go.Originally Posted by kwyckemynd00

Good deal. I hope this is the way to go b/c i need to get these pathetic excuses for triceps growing as badly as you need to add another 1/4" to your calfs and double their size. Thx for the input

The reason calves tend to be small is that they are predominantly slow twitch muscle fiber in most people. The best way to develop slow twitch muscle fiber is with long duration low intensity work - in the science and practice of strength training zatsiorsky talks about how elite ultraendurance athletes would do an exercise for 5-10 minutes straight in order to strengthen and develop the slow twitch red muscle fibers for their sport.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
