I recollect lots of comments to myself and my sister, at the time, about the size of our calves...really not sure if it worked, or if it was mostly down to genetics anyway and we were just building on that by being fitter and stronger to some degree.
I did a billion step ups in my day, long before I did any leg work. I have always wondered if my "natural" calf and quad size were tied into this.
