Re: Calfs

Cardio wont really make calves bigger unless they're undertrained to begin with, but running works them the most. You need to train calves with heavy resistance and high rep workouts to get good growth from them.

Calves are generally VERY difficult to grow. It takes a lot of effort with very heavy weight and a lengthy time investment to begin to see any gains. The size of your calves is very much genetically effected, you either got them (big) or you don't but with a lot of dedication you should get at least some growth.

I like (free) standing single leg calf raises, also ones done with a Smith machine. If your gym has seated calf machines then use those too. Just remember: heavy weight, lots of repetitions. You can also do calf work with an inclined leg press.
