Did you post to be lauded or for constructive criticism? The latter is infinitely more useful. Post the rest of yourself.

Although, to be fair, those are some smokin' calves.

Calves are a genetic muscle.

For sure. I'm not getting calves like that without surgery. :(

Calves are definitely genetic. Mine are at least as good as his and I almost never work them.

Can we see another pic? Possibly less blurry? This looks very photoshopped.

Agreed. Look at the right calve people. Either that's a strange angle or there's something else going on.

Sure does look photoshoped. Might as well of went even further with it...

Well that is definitely not photoshopped. I only have a crappy $20 webcam to take pictures with so it has very poor resolution. As far as just increasing the size i have quite large calves already. As of right now unflexed they are 18 inches. My question is, if you look at the outer part of the calf it is not as defined as the inner part and i don't know how to make it more even. Also mine are genetic. I have only been working them out really for about 5 months.

I'll try and get some better pic's somehow for you guys.

Huge calves.

I hate to say this on a BB forum, but unless the rest of you is BIG I wouldn't even work those calves. Those are RIDICULOUS. You're gonna look insanely out of proportion. I never work mine directly because they're already 18in and I've got more "pressing" matters to take care of in the gym, for muscles that aren't genetically blessed--like everything else.

Calves are huge. What do the rest of your legs look like? How much do you squat?

Duffman

Well i took more pics with my webcam. again it sucks so the pic's aren't too good. Also i'm 6'2 and about 215 so it's not like i have huge calves and a small upper body. Proportionaly it is smaller but my legs are very large on their own if i don't work them out.

Edit: Yes i know i have entirely too much fat.

Drop the fat and you'll still be left with those nice big leggies, bud.

What's your diet like?

Legs look good man. Upper body definately needs some work! I'd say cut for a while...

My diet is poor. I know this. I am not sure if i possess the willpower to diet right though, especially being in school and having to eat at the cafeteria and all of the food really sucks.

Well, I'll wait for a specific request. Read my cutting thread in my sig. PM me if you need something more.

Those aren't too shabby. Still, the award for biggest calves I've ever seen goes to fellow Illini Powerlifting member Andrew Kim:

(they're 19" and he's about 5'2" tall!)

My friend in highschool had ridiculous calves, and he didn't work out. They looked like big rocks under his skin.

i saw this guy on the Washington State University football team and his calves had to have had at least 5 inches on me.

I saw a heavy out of shape women in the las vegas outlet malls with easily the most insane calves I have ever seen on a human being. . . and i've met a number of professional bodybuilders. So insanely huge and lean as fook, veins running all through em. I couldnt help but stare.

Seriously Jay Cutler had nothing on this lady.


Nice calves bro, now just keep making progress on everything else.
