The TRX Calf Raise & 2 points to do it effectively. A simple exercise but one that requires a slightly different technique approach to get better development….

The calf muscles are mainly comprised of slow twitch fibres.

They are very resilient.⁣

They respond well when placed under constant tension for large amounts of time.⁣

2 KEY TECHNIQUE POINTS⁣

1. TEMPO:⁣

  • 4 seconds up⁣
  • 4 seconds squeeze as hard as possible at the top (25 sec in vid example)
  • 4 seconds down⁣
  • 0 rest at the bottom⁣
  • Repeat⁣

Do this tempo at the start of each leg day for 5-10mins.⁣

Progress by adding a backpack with weight.⁣

2. SQUEEZE AND STRETCH⁣

At the bottom stretch the calves right out, this is key.⁣

At the top squeeze as hard as you can for the entire 4 seconds, this is key.⁣ (Refer vid to 25 seconds in for example.

If you can beat that strain face you’re onto some good development)⁣

Use a block or books to aid both of these.⁣

Use the TRX for balance, slightly lean back to add the tension to support your body.⁣

You should find that after 3-4 mins you will begin to feel an almighty burn and pump.⁣

Captain chicken legs out

Stay safe, stay healthy.
