How can I defeat chicken legs
I've been trying to make my calfs grow sense i began lifting about a year ago. No matter what i try, they are not getting any bigger! I play soccer and not having big calfs when most do in this sport suck. Any advice?

Calves have a lot to do with genetics.

Like chest says, it has alot to do with genetics. Work your calves twice a week doing (1) Standing Calf Raises (2) Seated Calf Raises (3) Seated Calf Presses. That is all you can do. If they don't grow from that...you're out of luck bro.

Try throwing donkey calf raises in as well. They probably your best bet to adding some serious size.

add some inches around your quads and hams. ass to grass squatting does this

A donkey calf raise machine can also be used if you workout at a good gym.

I think adding quad/ham size is a great suggestion...taken the points i mentioned above into consideration

But most importantly, just like anything else. Proportion. Have you ever seen 22+ inch arms (lean) on a guy with small petite shoulders and who cant bench over 300. No, the guy would have to have bowling ball shoulders and a 450-500 bench. same principal if you are not born with calves. Getting the legs bigger so the calves can be in proportion would probably be a great strategy

I got mine to grow just by using huge weights. i would blast them once a week at the end of my workout to the point where they felt like jelly when i walked out the gym. I would do this for 3 weeks, then for the next 2 weeks id give them less weight on higher reps then give them 2 wks off.
