I actually finally did measure because I have been bothered by it for a while and wanted to know if, in fact, my eyes weren't playing tricks. My left calf is almost 1 inch larger than my right. That's a pretty big difference, don't you think?
I know that most people aren't completely symmetrical, but I would like to try to make the difference between the two not as large.
It may help to do some seated calf raises or standing calf raises. dont do more reps on one side though! make sure you do equal amounts of tension on both calves.. I'm not a trainer or anything but this may help build the other side equally to your other calve. hope that helps :)

By bigger, what do you mean? Are you looking at it and one appears larger? HAve you measured? If you have measured, what kind of difference are we talking about?

Our bodies are not symmetrical, in other words in perfect proportion. It could be that you left calf muscles are more dominant than your right which explains the asymmetry.
