    I agree. I've gotten the best results from doing them on the leg press and I can alternate my stances much easier.

    Oh lawd. I did the calves workout that was posted in the article where it was:

    Standing Calf Raise 5x5 3/2/X/1
    Seated Calf Raise 4-8-19 2/2/2/1

    I had never lifted with specific tempo before and it felt great. My calves are still shaking 30 mins. later.

    I train my calves once every 2 weeks.
    I've always had big calves, they run in the family.
    Less than 11% bodyfat, and STILL no overly shown abs.

    Same. To me, they look weird and ugly. What does one's calves normally look like say when you're standing on a flat surface/walking and not flexing like the pictures here.

    Anyone done 4 minute calves?

    What is the difference with doing Calf exercises with toes in or toes out??

But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

    I'm only 15, training for basketball, been working out for about a month now. A month ago, I had no calves at all, it was just ... fat.

    I just took this picture like 10 minutes ago, and I don't do squats because it hurts my lower back... what I do is Step Ups with dumbbells in each hands, and I alternate between step ups with weight and flying step ups without weight. I do about 3 sets of weights and 2 flying without. I stand in place and jump in place trying to reach as high as I can jumping the seocnd I reach the ground, and I do standing calf raises and that's pretty much it. I'm only 15, and it's been a month, hopefully they can grow some more : )

    Nice thread bud, I do have some info to add!!

    Slow twitch and fast twitch fiber training is EVERYTHING when it comes to calves.
    Your calves are the only muscle in the body that is 3/4 made up of slow twitch fibers, which makes them almost impossible to grow because of their recovery.
    In order to fatigue your calves fully during your set is to actually break each set up into 2 parts, this will mean rest intervals will be 30-45 secs MAX.
    The recovery of ATP storage is so quick you need to fatigue once then again in 30-45 secs to make them grow at the fastest pace possible. Give it a try!
    Great post btw, very helpful for many people, love those exercises you posted too, usually people stick to the machines.
