The majority of people i see on here and at my gym i train people, have trouble gaining size and shape to their calves must understand that there is more to training the lower leg than simply training the gastrocnemius and soleus muscle..
The Tibialis Anterior is comprised of more fast twitch fibers than the gastrocnemius and more than 3 times as much as the soleus, not only this but the calves look very impressive when viewed front on and tibialis anterior gives this impression. I believe that one of the keys to seeing results is from high rep training (12-15) combined with supersets.
Main reasons people lack lower leg growth and their potential is as follows:
* Lack full range of motion
* Insufficient rep range
* Lack of volume
* insuffient diet.
* inconsistant training
Tibialis Anterior: action- dorsi flexion ankle
Soleus: action- plantar flexion ankle
Gastrocnemius: action - plantar flexion
Good luck all on training the lower legs, consistancy in training will display results if you want it.
