Stop A Pulled Calf Muscle
Muscle resistance can cause a pulled calf muscle! Your calf
muscles are used to every stimulus you give them and they
will not grow. You see your calves carry you all day long
and well they are used to the overload you give them -that
is why a simple set of standing calf raises and seated calf
raises will not do much of you when it comes to developing
large calves and prevent a pulled calf muscle.
So you may increase
the weight- I know many people who do partials with a thousand
pounds on the standing calf raise exercise but still don't
have very big calves.
I will share
with you a simple synergistic tool that will magnify the
effectiveness of your calves' routine and that might very
well give you the calves you desire and help prevent a pulled
Here is how to
perform it: Perform a regular set of standing calf raises
taken to positive failure. After completing the set simply
stand on the balls of your feet and hold that position for
a count of 90 and then jump right back into another set
of standing calf raises and do as many reps as you can,
when you hit positive failure stand of your toes for another
90 seconds, keep on doing this until you can no longer perform
one good repetition with the standing calf raises this can
help prevent a pulled calf muscle.
You need only
one set of this get "large calves" exercise, if
done correctly your calves will be aching the next day and
if you take measures to ensure recovery your calf muscles
will grow and very soon you will have large calves and a
pulled calf muscle.
