The calf is defined largely as the three headed calf muscle (triceps surae muscle). In anatomy, we actually talk about the lower leg muscles and divide them into the following categories:
The calf muscle, on the back of the lower leg, is actually made up of two muscles: The gastrocnemius is the larger calf muscle, forming the bulge visible beneath the skin. The gastrocnemius has two parts or “heads,” which together create its diamond shape. The soleus is a smaller, flat muscle that lies underneath the gastrocnemius muscle.
