I have heard in the past that calf development is mostly genetic. I have pretty decent sized calves and rarely work them at all. For me, abs seem to be a hopeless endeavor tho.

I just met a natural powerlifter with what looked like 22 inch natural calves. They are definitely one of those freaky bodyparts that are highly genetic.

I know calves are mostly genetic. I also know that when I do my next cycle I'm going to pound the shit out of them and see if I can get any little bit on muscle on them.

Traps. Power shrug 600, slow with 400, and nothing yet.

Shoulders are pretty hard too.


I have fat boy calves, and 15 inch forearms.
