Variety is a Spice
When comes to building quality muscle one must be open minded to the possibilities. You can’t hope to build superhuman biceps if you do curls only one way. The same is true for any muscle group. Confusing the muscle means providing multiple opportunities to for it to continue to grow. Famed trainer Charles Glass understands this well.
Training variations can completely transform your development. As far as muscle groups that are in need in variation in training it’s the calves. Many train calves in the same way over and over and hope to make incredible development. When development is slow going then it means a change is necessary. Charles Glass understands this well and like any well respected bodybuilding guru has a host of different training variations to break through a plateau.
When a bodybuilding legend like Arnold Schwarzenegger needed to build his calves he needed to try a variety of different methods. Charles Glass implements these different approaches in his system. He explains how changing even the slightest angle in each exercise gives an opportunity to attack a different part of the muscle thus helping it to experience continued growth.
“WHEN I TRAIN LEGS, I TRAIN LEGS ONE DAY, HAMS THE NEXT DAY, I’M GOING TO DO CALVES. IT’S TOUGH, BUT ALL THE BLOOD IS WHERE, IN THE LEGS, IN THE QUADS. THAT’S THE PART THAT YOU GOTTA DO, YOU GOTTA SUCK IT UP AND GO.”
