I've tried working out on my calfs more, it's not easy but I'm getting there.

Tyre flipping is my current fave workout. Pretty much everything gets worked on there.

Mine are due to simple seated calf raises and cycling (I suppose). My favourite bit of equipment nowadays is the rope climber - gets the whole upper body in play.

I really want to go back to the gym but I'm just so tired all of the time and don't have the energy to go and work out. Hopefully the doctors will figure out what's up with me.


Diet/Sleep are probably the issues here. There's also the possibility you might be emotionally/chemically out of whack ins ome way.

Get your thyroid tested. Otherwise you might be just fed up. I was like that in my final year of college and no doctor could figure it out as there was nothing physically wrong with me other than being hungover a lot of the time.

Er, if you can lift it too many times you're not doing enough. The ideal amount of reps for anything in a set is between 6-8 reps. If you can lift it after that range then you're too light. Reistence is really only useful for re-training damaged muscles (Which is what the weight machines in gyms were developed for, to aid muscle recovery).

Essentially if you're not panting/sweating you're not doing enough. Which is how I gauge it.

But is more reps not better for toning and weight loss ?and resistance for growth ,no ?

My current goal is to look like an extra from 'Spartacus'.

I'll not get there (too old) but its good to aim for something!

A muscle can only grow or shrink. Fat is much the same. You burn fat either way. It's just you tend to grow a lot stronger with heavier weights and less reps. Which depending on how functional you want your body to be is a good thing. Stronger muscles/core means less injuries and disease. :)

@Trigg: It's totally possible to get there diid you not see that picture of the ripped 60/70 year old in the locker room recently?

Ultimately you should do what makes you feel good. I just personally happent to think the science weighs more in favour of compound olympic lifts than standard isolated free weights. But you should do what feels good and works for you.

I find that a mixture of free-weights and resistance machines works for me.

For reps, try doing 10-8-6-4-2. It totals 30 which is about right.
