Exercise Rating
5/10

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

I saw Arnold perform this one. I'd totally do it if I found a girl(s) willing. Looks fun.

Aug 16, 2012 8:26 PM: I just use a dip belt, a board under the feet, and a bench to hold onto.

This is the best exercise for the gastrocnemius.

Jun 2, 2012 7:21 AM: I love this exercise, however what I do is fill a hiking back back with weights. Works the same and boy do my calves burn! You don't need a person-- you just need to be creative.

Sep 6, 2011 5:15 PM: When is she available, my calves need some work. ;) I would add a block of wood, such as a 2 x 4 under the toes for better extension of the muscle your targeting with this.
