    I heard Calf muscle is something extremely extremely tough to grow through exercise. That particular muscle group is more genetically determined than any other, it appears.

    I have tried fair bit over the years (training heavy, training volumes) and mine has gotten more ripped and stronger and not "bigger". OTOH I know quite a few Chinese in HK who absolutely do 0 work out, yet have monster calves (including ladies).
    Few but ripe.

    I'm guessing there would be a huge genetic disadvantage to bulky Calves in the days of Grok.

    Thanks for advice! Don't know about the squats though, I'll consider it.
