A simple exercise but one that requires a slightly different technique approach to get better development….
The calf muscles are mainly comprised of slow twitch fibres. They are very resilient.
💥They respond well when placed under constant tension for large amounts of time.
🎯 2 KEY TECHNIQUE POINTS
4 seconds up
4 seconds squeeze as hard as possible at the top (25 sec in vid example)
4 seconds down
0 rest at the bottom
Do this tempo at the start of each leg day for 5-10mins.
Progress by adding a backpack with weight.
🎯2. SQUEEZE AND STRETCH
At the bottom stretch the calves right out, this is key.
At the top squeeze as hard as you can for the entire 4 seconds, this is key.
(Refer vid to 25 seconds in for example. If you can beat that strain face 👹 you’re onto some good development)
Use a block or books to aid both of these.
Use the TRX for balance, slightly lean back to add the tension to support your body.
🔥You should find that after 3-4 mins you will begin to feel an almighty burn and pump.

I truly believe everyone can have the ability to achieve their fitness goals anywhere any way with a TRX and a specific program that matches that goal. Hopefully my plans match your goals and if they do – I guarantee you will see results if you stick with it!
I used to have an unhealthy psychological reliance on gyms, believing I had to be close to one or in one at all times to achieve my fitness goals. It was limiting and confining.
Now, 4+ years later having TRX’d across 32 countries I feel in the best shape of my life after discovering the HUGE fitness possibilities achievable anywhere with a TRX.
It’s my mission and passion to help people gain fitness freedom and achieve their fitness goals absolutely anywhere using a TRX.
