Jun 4, 2016 7:58 PM: CALVES must be be trained 2-4 days a week for about 12 weeks straight you may take 1 week off (on the 13 week) to rest the calves.. by the end of the year you will see great improvements.. Take photos and measurements before and after the year..
To really focus on the calf muscle try doing this...+See More

May 1, 2016 8:11 AM: do this exercise standing on a calf block or step and bent over
and hold on to a bench, do this exercise without a partner,
it works effective even without a partner too! do 4 sets of 20 reps

Feb 23, 2016 6:58 AM: [Question]
This is literally the world's most elusive machine for me to find in a Gym. I am expecting I will have to use the Leg Press in place of this type of Calf Exercise. Any objections and/or alternatives to someone who lifts without a nice woman to have sit on their back? ^_^

Aug 4, 2015 12:04 PM: Nope. I'm not going to have anyone on my back. I'll just do the seated calif raise. Sometimes keep in consideration that some people maybe out of their youth years.

Jan 29, 2015 1:30 AM: Would love to ask the hotties at my gym to sit on me. But seriously, very impractical. AND very uncontrolled. In other words, the weight you'll use may fluctuate a lot, depending on your partner. Are you really going to ask your partners how much they weight?

Anyway, there are just so many...+See More

Sep 8, 2014 1:03 AM: use a dips belt and the smith machine, no need to have any assistance from others just set it so that you can almost lock your legs before you take the strain and pack on the required weight.

Jul 18, 2014 10:34 AM: from some of my research, this is one of the true *secrets of the pros* to building monster calves...but ya ...trying to find a a girl might be hard.... or maybe just go all in and ask the 280 lbs power lifter if he can help you with an excercise... then tell him to mount you LOL
