    One calf is bigger than the other

    my right calf is a half inch bigger than my left one. Should i just ignore my right calf and do just my left one or just forget it about it and keep working them both?

    Yes just ignore it and they will even out eventually.

    A year ago there was a 1.5" difference between my calves when I asked this same question, but I just ignored it and now there is only a quarter inch difference. It would be a bigger deal if you've been training for longer than a few years though.

    Take Favori's advice... just do more exercises where you use both calves at the same time and they will even out. My biceps are the same way so to even them out I can just do more barbell exercises..
    Don't pray for lighter burdens but for stronger bodies.

    ^ this and I also forgot to mention calf raises should help them grow quite a bit if squats aren't working. I don't know how your body reacts to squats or calf raises, but from my personal experience squats do nothing for my calves.

    My friend's got the same thing!! She has had it forever though. Said she broke her foot when she was little, didn't go to the doc, and was hopping around for a couple weeks, haha.

    Anyway, break the foot of the bigger calf, and when all is said and done, both calves will be the same.
