How To Build Killer Calves Workout Program

If you were to do an informal survey of the guys at your gym, chances are almost ALL of them would like to build bigger more muscular calves.

Well developed calves really help to balance out your leg development and enhance the overall look of your physique. After all, nobody wants to have well big muscular thighs stacked on top of puny little calves.

But having weak calves is one of the most common physique flaws that you’ll see among the gym regulars, and it really does look like “Chicken Legs”.

Now I’ll admit that when it comes to building Huge Calves, your genetics play a big part. There’s no denying it, some folks just have been genetically blessed with massive calves, and in some cases they don’t even workout!

I know you probably hate these people…

And then there are some folks who workout regularly, bust their butt in the gym, follow a strict diet, take their supplements, etc. and it seems like they can’t add an inch of muscle to their calves if their life depended on it.

If you can relate more along the lines of the second group,
then this blog post is for YOU!

The most important thing that you need to realize is that even if you are not genetically gifted below the knees, improvement is always possible. After all, if you’ve been able to build some muscle in your other body parts – your back, shoulders, chest, arms and thighs – then you can certainly build muscle in your calves as well.

Granted you’ll probably never build “World Class Calves” without having good genetics for them, but you can still build “GOOD Calves” that are in proportion to the rest of your body when you follow the right training protocols.

Lee Hayward's Calfs

There are 2 main reasons why the calves are so darn hard to build:

  1. The calves are a very dense muscle, there are literally more muscle fibers in the calves than any other muscle group in the body. They also have a very high work capacity from having to carry heavy weight for high reps all throughout the day. Every time you take a step you are literally doing a mini calve raise with your bodyweight. Because of this it’s much harder to push the calves into the “Growth Zone” compared to other muscle groups.

  2. The calves are NOT a glamorous muscle group. When most guys start working out they are generally focused on building up their chest, arms, abs, etc. These are the “show off” muscles of the body. The calves are way down on the list of priorities for most people. It’s usually only after you’ve been training for a while and are getting more advanced with your workouts that you all of a sudden realize “Uh-Oh… I don’t have any calves…” and then you try to play catch up (this is where a lot of guys are right now).

The actual calve workouts themselves are a real challenge because to build the calves requires a different kind of intensity compared to training your other body parts. You can’t just train heavier, or do more sets & reps, etc. The basic principles of progressive overload just doesn’t work the same for the calves like it does for most other muscle groups.

You need to Look Outside The Box and do some unorthodox training in order to get those suckers to grow.

There is a definite “Right” and “Wrong” way to go about maximizing muscle growth in the calves. And unfortunately most guys you see at the gym are doing things wrong and making some critical mistakes in their calve exercises that prevent them from getting the gains that they should be getting.

And that’s exactly what I cover in my Killer Calve Workout Program:

    I have been blessed with nice calves, although I also don’t shy away from working them hard. In fact my other leg parts have always been on the skinny side. Punishing my legs with extra heavy and hard work has payed off, but I never forget my calves. Standing & sitting calf raises from various angles with different rep & weight schemes, and flexing hard will make’em grow, sometimes it just takes longer for them to respond to workouts, don’t give up!

    Yo Lee just wanted to know if the people that purchased this system originally will get the updates also? Or do we need to invest in this one?

    I had joined the gym last 3years ago. I have developed strong legs. My claves have formed well by doing weight trainning and skipping workouts. I was shy to expose my legs a long time ago. Today I often prefer to wear shorts like cargo shorts to showoff my musculer legs.

  • Darrell


    Right, I learned absolutely nothing about calf development reading this article, except that it is hard as h.. to make them grow. I’m getting tired of Lee’s junk mail coming to my email.

    seated toe raises are the best (icarian mach.) for the beginner. they prevent injury and give good results. work to exhaustion of muscle – at least 40/50 reps.
