    ski jump calve raise (for stubborn calves)

    about 6+ months ago i was having real trouble growing my calves. until i came up with this variation of the ski jump calve raise.

    i do mine with a dip belt and in the very high rep range. and its been working soooo well that i thought i'd share.

    strap on your weighted dip belt and stand facing a wall. stand about 2-3 feet away from wall. now keep you feet where they are and lean into the wall (so your in a vertical press up position)

    your calves should be in streched position. now perfrom calve raises. nice and slow.

    i've been doing these in the 30-50 reps range. not too much weight and loads of tut.

    i havent seen my way any where else. but ski jump calve raises with a barbell in a fixed squat rack is where i got the idea. although they dont feel very good imo.

    there is no need of a block of some sort..? So you just do it on the floor , is this correct?

    yea no need for a block cause your calves are already in a fully stretched position

    Just for anyone who doesn't have a dip belt (such as I ): I use the hacksquat machine. I put the footplate at an angle such that the calves are in a similar stretched position, as if you leaned against a wall. I lie with chest against the machine (ie. opposite of normal hacksquat position). Works like a charm. A wooden block is useful if you cannot get the right incline on the footplate.

    yep ive found that the best excercises are the ones you do i a nice stretch on.. Such as pullups with a full dead weight drop, squats all the way back and down, bench press with your shoulders tucked back together as far as possible, calf raises going back to heel raises back and forth, blah blah blah the list goes on. stretching is the key to each exercise. get that blood in there ...

    Yup. Also dokey calve raises take the pressure off the lower back and are less taxing on the core IMO. I do both, usual alternate each workout.

    I do my standing calf raises on what's really a squat machine. It has a platform, so if you hang your heels off it you get at about a 30 degree angle. Anyway, it's similar, and yes, very effective. If anyone has access to this kind of machine (it's old and most places will have gotten rid of them because they suck for squats), it's easier than wrestling with the dip belt. But I may try them with the belt anyway, just to get a different angle.

    So by pointing your toes inward it would hit the outter calf more?

    Lightbulb calves training

    What actually is a dip belt. And does my gym have one? I have no donkey calf raise machine either at my gym, YMCA, and I dont think I can get anyone willing to sit on my back.
    With the increase in cardio and boxing/mma training I am staying at 175-185lbs compared to 215-230lbs. Will post recent pics soon. Since I will not fight until 6 months from now I will gain some muscle weight and worry about cutting weight later.

    What i used to do for calves, and it worked well, was i would just do calf raises with no blocks or anything, but do incredibly high reps (200-500). Once you are almost in exactly the 50-100 range it will burn like hell, but once you get above 100 it will stop hurting and you can keep going for hundreds more. make sure your in the right mind set to get past 100 though, otherwise the pain is wasted.

    just my 2 cents
