Turn your calves into bulls with Kris Gethin

Turn your calves into bulls with Kris Gethin

Don't curse your calves or make excuses for them. Burn down your weaknesses and turn them into weapons with this two-pronged training approach from Kris Gethin!

Calves were once a stubborn weakness for me, as they are for millions of other people. For a long time, I made excuses for my weak calves—bad genetics, high muscle insertions, or other training priorities. But it bothered me more than I let on, so I silently hoisted more weight on my shoulders in the standing calf press than in any other lift. It didn't seem to matter, but I wasn't about to submit to normality or accept failure. I decided I would solve this riddle by dissecting my training and nutritional protocol to find and correct the fault in my lower legs.

I bought a notebook and swore that, one day, it would contain my answer. I would chart every new workout principle and exercise application, and I would train like hell, until I finally cracked the calf code. It took time and a lot of self-inflicted torture, but I eventually found my answer. It involved a technique component, but just as importantly, a significant mental shift. This is how I found both.


I started with what I had heard worked for other people. I built up to daily calf-training sessions, and experimented with partial reps, 21s, German volume, slow negatives, soleus and gastrocnemius double splits, priority training, and seemingly everything in between. No matter how I elevated time under tension or how much iron I moved, it never seemed to work.
