Calf training and sports/HIIT


Staff member
Sorry if the title is a bit weird, I didn't know what to write.

I'll try to keep this short: I've been training calves directly 4 times a week for a total of about 18-22 set every week, usually doing standing exercises for 12-15 reps. Never experienced any soreness. Last Wednesday I played soccer with some friends for 45 minutes or so (it was pretty intense, I ran a ton), and my calves were sore for over 48 hours. The rest of my legs were perfectly fine.

What do guys make of this? Should I change the way I train calves?

This may seem like a weird thread, but I don't understand how running intermittently for 45 minutes can work my calves more than actual calf training.

Thanks for reading.
