Just wondering why on all the leg workouts there are never calf exercises?
do you advise adding calves on other days? And also do you do calves with the bodybuilders you train?
Would you advise training abs and Calves together separately on another training day/?
If calves are a priority I generally recommend you keep them separate from leg day. As it will just be too much overall for you to have an effective calf workout at the end of leg day. If you want a solid workout search “best calf workout” on the app, it’s what I do 90% of the time. If they are a priority, train them 2-3 times a week, at the start of an upper body session.
If you really want to make them a priority placing them first in your workouts would be a good place to start. By starting them first ensures that you’ll be able to use greater intensity and thus put more effort on to training that specific muscle.
Maybe not on your leg days although there might be some benefits to that as well which leads me to my question on the topic. So what I would like to know is are there any potential benefits of light’ish calf work before squat for instance. And by benefits I mean improving ankle and/or knee stability and overall squat mechanics. Thanks in advance.
