Build Big Massive Calves With This Tip

By Rob Maraby

You need to take all sets to failure to make exceptional calf growth gains!

There are many who train calves and stop as soon as the pain gets unbearable. They avoid the pain and the discomfort and wonder why they cant seem t get their calves growing. Chant mantras to yourself when the pain gets tough and drill past it-it is the only way you will get them to grow! Associate pain with calf growth, without it you wont grow

Training to failure and why it is essential to the muscle growth process!

Should I train to failure? What is training to failure? How do I train to failure? Is training to failure beneficial to my weight gain and muscle building goals?

Training to failure is closely associated with lactic acid build up in the muscles, which is the very reason you tend to be sore after a high intensity training session!

During the cycle of training to failure you are actually injuring muscle fibers, tearing them down and these torn down fibers enter a repair mode immediately after a workout-the muscle then adapts and gets bigger! Do this often enough and you will gain all the mass and weight you need!

The process of muscle adaptation is called hypertrophy, muscle hypertrophy will in turn lead to an increase in the maximum force generating capacity of a muscle, which is essentially an increase in strength!

Here is the mass gaining secrets you may not know! The more stress you apply on a muscle the larger it will hypertrophy, similarly if your muscles receive less stress than they are used too, they will atrophy or decrease in size!

Now when lactic acid is high in the muscles, and when the concentration of other anabolic products like phosphate and hydrogen ions...these elements allow muscle contractions and trigger muscle growth

When you don't train to failure these metabolites are absent and when they are absent growth wont occur!

Remember that bodybuilding is all about stimulating muscle mass and weight gain; you must therefore train to failure to achieve maximum gains from your effort at the gym. If the stress applied is not high enough the body has no reason to change

Remember that muscle will only increase in size and strength when they are forced to contract to their maximum and this mean training to failure!
