5 Exercise Circuit to Build Bigger Calf Muscles

Build your calf muscles with a tough weight training circuit. I know you are concerned about how every visible part of your body looks. I've had quite a few people ask about how to build bigger calves.


Some people, because of genetics, have bigger calves than others and they don't have to do any extra work to make them look great. Other people have very small calf muscles and want them to look more proportionate to their thighs.

This calf muscle building circuit helped Chris increase his calf size 2 inches in 2 months!

Here is the circuit, rest 30 seconds between exercises (alternate between heavy weight rep days and full speed light rep days):

1. Donkey calf raises, 25 repetitions

2. Standing dumbbell calf raises, 25 repetitions
3. Toe lifts on leg press machine, 25 repetitions
4. Standing calf raises on machine, 25 repetitions (pictured above)
5. Standing dumbbell calf raises, full speed, 25 repetitions


Do this circuit 3 times. You can do this workout up to 2 times a week (separate from your regular weight training workout).

Make sure to do static calf stretches after this workout to bring your muscles back to normal length.

Now build those calves the way you want them!
