My calves. They hurt.

24 Jun

Results update here!

4th day of a 30-day program to add an inch to my calves, as promised by the article below:

Basically the program tells you to do between 50 to 100 reps of calf raises everyday for a month. The upward portion lasts 2 seconds, hold at the top for 2 seconds, and downward 2 seconds.

The only way to know if it works is to try it and the cost for trying this out is very low –  no prep, no equipment needed, easily performed anytime and anywhere. So here I am, into the 4th day and my calves ache like mad and I walk funny. I expect the ache to wear off eventually as the muscles adapt to the high repetitions, which was something I rarely do.

My calves measure 14 inches cold when I started this. Will report in 26 days with the results. :)

      I was skeptical too but thought since I got little to lose, might as well try it out. Ha!
