    I do 2, but i dont train for volume as you obviously do. Just see whats comfortable to you. Just as a side note, from what i've read about calves it sound like you might be overtraining them. But maybe not, if it's working for you keep doing it.
    the jakes on you.

    I do 5 sets staying in the 15-6 rep range.

    I usually do leg extensions before hand to get the blood flowing.

    3 sets is good for you.

    Drop the leg ext. and add in some hack squats or leg presses after squats and move deadlifts to back day.

    Try this out...

    4 sets...

    1 set of 8

    1 set of 8 at beginning wt +10 lbs

    1 set of 6 at beginning wt +20lbs

    1 set at 50% of beginning wt but do this to failure.

    2.5 minute rest between each set.


    Then jump to extensions and curls and follow the same sets.

    Do seated or standing toe raises for calves at 3 sets of 12.


    I guarantee this will blow your legs away. It gives an awsome pump and you will want to go home, eat tons of protein and go to sleep.
