You walk around ALL DAY on your feet. Your calves are insanely and incredibly resistant. They are not going to grow from just any old stimulation. They need to be hammered in many ways (both weight and reps) and they need to be pumped and stretched. Before i go further i want to state that the Achilles tendon can store and generate a phenomenal amount of energy and will frequently rob the calf muscles of work. Try this....get on a calf raise and use a weight you normally struggle with. Bounce and do 10 reps. Now, pause at the bottom of every rep then try to raise up. MUCH harder right? Its partially the fast twitch fibers activating, but its also partially the elasticity and energy from the Achilles tendon. There is NO other exercise you will so drastically be able to increase the weight moved by bouncing. You want pure fibral contraction.....so you need to take ALL momentum out of calf work until the end (when you use momentum to squeak out a few extra reps past failure). It is pretty well known that the fascial tissue is also very thick and tough on the calf region specifically, so you will need to really pump them and get a good stretch WHILE PUMPED throughout calf training.

Completely genetic along with the insertions of the muscles. If you have high insertions your calves will always look rubbish.

@trinity not disagreeing but this has helped with size on calves for many .. not shape? Which would yes indeed be genetics
