    I have a huge leg fetish, if you want to call it that. I work near a Cross fit gym and know a few friends who cross fit and their Calves are amazing? HOW? Whats the secret? They are big and sculpted, so hot, so manly. SIGH

    Have a good Thursday.

    You need to expand and contract the calves as you would any muscle if you want to attain hypertrophy. Crossfit incorporates many sports, - including box jumping, cycling, skipping and sprinting...all of those, if done properly, will create far more NATURAL concentric and eccentric muscle movements in your calves than your average calf building weight machine at the gym...especially because you use it in compound, rather than in isolation.

    With cycling, it's always important to move the heel down all the way. If you jog or sprint, taking your foot and heel through the entire motion. If you fast skip, you make quick tip-toe like movements. All of it will work your calves. Otherwise, try ballet - they usually have awesome legs! icon_wink.gif

    Also, forgot to add, crossfit makes use of a 15 minute warm up routine plus stretching after you exercise is v important as any athlete would know. Even if you do just body building, stretching boosts hypertrophy because of how it allows more oxygen rich and mineral rich and protein etc etc blood into the muscles ... There's a story out there about the US men's olympic gymnasts who did one day of weight training and one day of yoga - those who did it had greater and faster muscle growth than those who did not. Crossfit trains your athletic fitness which includes flexibility, agility etc etc, not just your muscle size...cheers.
