    So I don't build muscle very easily at all, had a lot of trainers and physical therapists and shit tell me that. However, I can build leg muscle pretty easily. I don't lift my calves at all (no calf raises, etc. ) and the only activity I do with them is running.

    I like my calves the way they are (decent mix of definition and bulk) but based on my genetics (dad, sister) I know if I keep running and stuff they're just gonna keep getting bigger and bigger. Anyway to keep my calves the way they are now?

    Cut off your lower leg(s) and store them in formaldehyde, that should stop them from growing.

    running isn't going to transform your calves into huge balls of muscle. dont worry about it

    wrong question to ask F&N.

    stop listening to people who tell you that it will be especially hard for *YOU* to build muscle. read the stickies.

    i will say that you should not worry about your calves getting "too big" but just start lifting and keep your body proportionate.

    I dunno...all those PhDs in sports medicine or other related degrees and their years of experience dealing with college and professional athletes must be wrong :hsugh:

    And I have been lifting for probably 2 years now, trying to get my upper body bigger.

    No I'm a stupid noob, I haven't read the stickies since they were posted ages ago. And yeah I haven't been eating enough lately cause of school crap but I get at least 3500 a day. Hoping for 4500.
