Front/side raises; incline presses can also help.
It takes a couple weeks...and a few more to get the mental confidence back to work with heavy weights again. Just start doing light bodyweight work after about 1.5-2 weeks.
Once you start looking oddly unbalanced the mentality will fix itself.
Seriously. Partial blame on ourselves, partial blame on Aqua_Beowulf. ;-)
Twice a week - Around 12 sets total ranging from 15 to 6 repetitions. Both light and heavy. My calves are a complete pain to develop.
Rant on the third page?!?! This would have NEVER happened in 2005.
I use them to warmup as well for sets of at minimum 10-12. I do use the hammer strength plate-loaded unilateral extension machine later in the routine for sets of 8-12, but never too heavy.

As mentioned, your routine should be structured as such to avoid targeting the same musculature consecutively. If your back is sore and you're hitting the chest, that's fine. Soreness isn't a...
