Bulking calves

I am really trying to bulk my calves right now. My upper legs are feaking massive, but my calves are a bit behind, even though I work them 3-4 times a week. (Sometimes so sore I can't drive that good... )

I started to get some cut, but I want to bulk. Should I do high weight, 5x5?

btw, i am a mid teen. 6'0 160 lbs. <9% body fat

NO NO NO, it should be DFWLS1's, CUMMINS, C6 VETTES.net

Oh boy!

Is it okay that I use the leg press where you add the weight on the side. (not sure what it is called) I tried it, with the legs together, feet pointing out, and legs apart feet pointing in, and it burnt pretty good. Some pansy came up and told me to get off because I wasnt using the machine right...

Thanks

atleast both of yours are the same size! My left Calf is freakishly huge compared to my right. Broke my ankle when I was younger, long before I completely understood rehabing the body

I'm just saying that you can do all you want and if you've got the genetics to have little ham hocks down there, you will... if not, you won't... that doesn't mean they won't be STRONG, but they might not be huge

Get fat. Fat people get huge calves from carrying around their fat asses all day.

Only calf work I've ever done is walking out squats.

Genetics screwed me on the calve situation as well. My Father and Grandfather have some of the worst chicken legs I have ever seen. So naturally I do too. However, once I started wearing my z-coils my calves have started to bulk up some due to the different angle. It's too the point now that I don't want to work out my thighs just so I don't look goofy again. Back in highschool I had massive thighs, with little fucking calves. Now it's a little more even.

I also remember the basketball players wearing special shoes to bulk their calves.

FUCK CANADA AND THEIR BULLSHIT WAYS
