Build Your Calves To Olympic Skier Status!

This plan was originally devised for Olympic skier Luke Sauder. The plan was to build up his calves to serve as a cushion to prevent his knees from reaching severe angles as he glided down the mountain; the plan worked. The problem with growing your calves is that there will be limited ROM in calf movements. Squats, for example, provide a considerable ROM that is easy to vary.

 

 

Day 1: High Volume

A1) Seated Calf Raises

 

 

 

A2) Donkey Calf Raises


 

Exercise B: Standing Calf Raises

B1) Standing Calf Raises:

 

Day 2: Low-Volume (to be done 48 hours after Day 1)

A1) Triple Drop Standing Calf Raises: 3 x 10-10-10 at a 121 tempo, resting 90 seconds between sets. In other words, three drop sets of the video that we posted above.
