i am a 100% german and i had to put a lot of work in my calves to see little muscle. it is not a nations-problem:-)
But i can understand you. my beautiful wife had the same problems like you.
she is "genetic gifted". by only doing the cindy crawford video with 5 lbs dumbbells, she build big muscles
She hate it, because she had also muscular claves by doing nothing!
She want's to have skinny legs like alessandra ambrosia (a victora secret topmodel) http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&c ... a=N&tab=wi)
She go on a low carb & fat &cal diet und get sixpacks abs.
thats sensational for a girl to go on 10% bodyfat.
But that was to extreme, because i can already see her clavicle and pelvic bone.
That was a real heredity-problem.
Try to talk her out of going for a way skinny look. Muscular women are much hotter. Like Jamie Eason for example:
I would never want skinny legs. Just very very toned and just a little less calf.
I've totally been on target and still working out like a mad women. I just never have my book handy when I sit down. I still have an hour of cardio left today. Yuck I just want to go to bed. He doesen't get treadmill on an incline for an hour today though. I'm walking outside on the weekends! Man, indoor cardio sucks. I miss my outdoor runs!!!!!!!!!! But I won't do anything to sabotage my efforts. I even feel a little guilty for not doing treadmill. I just didn't have time at the gym so I'll have to walk tonight.
Just for the record today was Hams, Abs, Shoulders, Quads.
