    Default Will my calf bounce back?

    At the end of June of this year, I had surgery to repair a full Achilles rupture. I've always had big calves by nature (18+") but after seven weeks of being in a cast, the size of my right calf dropped a bit. I'm worried it won't bounce back to its previous size even with training. So... will it bounce back?

    As long as your range of motion has been restored and your ankle joint is functional your calves should fill back out within a couple of months (perhaps more quickly with some direct training).

    Yes but go easy on it for a while.

    A little off topic, but I feel like big calves are genetics. Being a smaller guy who hits calves 2-3x a week with "slight" growth I was curious if i should ever expect to have "beast" calves. They are proportionate, but yah know, they can never be big enough lol.
