The Mat – Strength Magazine – April, 1928

Judging from my correspondence and from experience in mixing among physical culturists, the hardest part of the body to develop and improve is the calf of the leg. This is, of course, speaking in a collective sense, as some exercise devotees will find the calf easy to increase, while some other part a0f the anatomy will prove a stubborn proposition. The average culturist, though, will find the lower leg a tough bunch of muscles to enlarge. There must be some reason for this, but like everything else there is probably a slightly different reason in each case.
