Guilty as charged I was having way too much fun with an analogy that ends up accusing of someone having his mom wipe his butt. My apologies for getting carried away.Originally Posted by Slim Schaedle
A "complete calf training lesson"? Here's something better -- principles for training the calves:
1) The gastrocs are easy to neglect,
2) Targetting the gastrocs will improve the appearance of the calves greatly,
and you can
3) Target the gastrocs by
a) concentrating on the negatives4) Pick your reps and sets based on how you like to train.
b) doing a calf exercise where the knees are straight
Sorry to disappoint you, fatty, but you'll be waiting a long time. Here's the thing: it doesn't matter how big slim's calves are. Really.Originally Posted by fattyniebs
You've fallen into the same logical fallacy that convinces people that the biggest guy in the gym always knows what he's talking about when it comes to working out. Just because someone has big pecs doesn't mean he's right when he tells you how to work your "inner pecs." Just because someone is fat and heavy doesn't mean he is automatically an expert on gravity.
I don't doubt slim's good intentions. And it's great that you're so loyal to your pal. But he really isn't helping if he's convincing someone that ankle eversion while doing calf exercises will help.
If you're waiting for me to show you that I'm an expert, you'll be waiting a long time for that, too. I have no interest in convincing you or slim that I'm an expert. That's why all the links to reputable sources are there. Anyone inclined to read can learn for him/herself.
btw, my egotistical issues aren't "lying beneath the surface." I would have thought they should be pretty obvious to all. And they are being addressed. That's why I'm posting here
