This past monday i really blasted my calves, and as of today (thursday) they're still sore as hell.
As calves are supposedly one of the fastest recovering muscle groups, i was a bit concerned. It's not that "beginner's soreness" either, as i typically work calves 2x a week with a 2-3 sets to failure. Is there something in my diet that might have slowed down recovery time (dont think i changed anything)? Or could this just be that i was feeling especially masochistic on monday? :/
Either way - should i wait untill they're no longer sore before training them again?
The harder you try the tougher you will be!
What about if they get indirectly worked?
Yesterday was my leg day, which i put off until today because they were so sore... theyre still sore today. I wouldnt mind going again today, but im worried i might hurt the recovery process.
hacks and curls really pound my calves :/
sometimes when I do my calves, they remain sore for an entire week. just let 'em rest until they don't hurt anymore.
