Ageless Aukland dishes about calf growing.
December 8, 2009
At 51, Maryland's Lisa Aukland won the 2009 Atlantic City Pro and finished fourth in the Ms. Olympia. She's as bright as she is buff, as she has a doctorate in pharmacy, specializing in poison information and treatment. Here the doctor tells us how she grew two of the best calves in bodybuilding.
DR. AUKLANDS RX FOR CALVES
* Something I find most effective is cycling my exercises. I never do the same routine twice. I change the exercises, the order of exercises, the rep range, and/or the rest period lengths at each session.
* Calves are a strong point for me, so I train them only once per week and with more reps than previously. If they're a weakness for you, hit them every other day with most reps in the 10-15 range.
* Slow down. Each repetition for calves should be smooth and perfectly executed, getting full use of the negative portion of the rep and a full range of motion.
