Calves:Week 6

This week, we’re performing the same exercises as we did in Week 5. You’ll use the same sets and reps, but instead of resting between sets, you’ll perform 1 set of each of the three different foot positions for 20 reps each. And then you’ll rest for 3 minutes after you’ve performed all 60 reps. And then you’ll do it again for a total of 3 giant sets. You will need to adjust the weights accordingly.

NOTES:

* Choose a lighter weight even at the beginning—remember that in week 5 you chose a weight that allowed you to reach failure at 20 reps before resting. Now you need to go with a weight where you’ll reach failure at 60 reps without resting.

* Use a full range of motion and really emphasize your target muscles at the beginning—don’t “save” your calves for the work to come.

* Don’t forget to stretch your calves muscles between sets and psyche yourself up for your next giant sets.
