Is it okay if I train my calves 3 days a week in FIERCE FIVE?

The program suggests to only do them in workout A (meaning one week I will be training them 2x a week, the next week just once, and all over again) But my calves are naturally very small. Should I still respect that frequency and instead do 3 sets in workout A instead of just 2?
