Calf Presses are of the Devil

Y’all, I can’t hardly walk!

Okay, I don’t ever skip leg day, but I was born with dinky calves. They attach pretty high, so genetically they’ll just never look very big. It would take 20 years of constant, perfect training, and that’s just not gonna happen. But I do try to include them. Sometimes I forget.

But I realized the other day that I hadn’t done them for a while. So, me being extra, I did 200 reps in one session! And, OMG, three days later I tried to get up out of bed, and like to fell out on the floor! I couldn’t straighten my knees, I about fell OUT.
None of my clients are going to have any sympathy for me AT ALL. (Oh, no! I forgot there are stairs!) I gotta summon the spirit of SWEET BROWN up in this sacred space! I’d look cute in heels… HEEEEY!

(Squats also of the Devil!)
