    Lightbulb Tip for Calf Training

    Many people struggle with their calves in regard to hypertrophy. A tip I will give you all is to not wear shoes while you do your calf exercises.

    Of course, if your gym is crowded and the machine is right in the middle of the floor I would not recommend doing them barefoot or with socks. If your gym is always crowded when you go, sneak some dumbbells over to a corner in your gym and do your calf raises on a stair or just on the floor. I bet you'll feel a much better burn from the added ROM.

    yea I tried doing that one time, but I found that it hurt my feet too much. Maybe I should keep at it and build up a tolerance to it though......
    In 1945, Adolf Hilter died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied, "I am responsible for the massacre of millions" Satan said, "well done, sit to the right of my throne." In 1953, Joseph Stalin died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied "I killed millions to stay in power" Satan said "good, sit to my left" 2010, Ronnie James Dio died and went to Hell, Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" Dio replied, "Bitch, get the fuk off my throne!"

    I do my calf raises barefoot at home with a dip belt. Feels good, just a bitch to set it all up.

    Do you have a foot fetish?

    J/k

    Vince Gironda INSISTED that his trainers not wear shoes. I take the middle ground and use flexible running type shoes.

    Another tip: when you rise up onto your toes, focus on pushing up onto your big toe and not spreading the load over your other toes. You'll find it will bite much more.
