I don't train calves right now. I'm cutting right now though and I figure as weight drops, they're gonna drop in size too if I don't start hitting them.
I keep hearing that high reps and frequent training are needed to hit calves, but do low reps have a place here? And just how high are high reps?
I'll be training calves on my 3 off days. The exercises I have to use are:
-standing calf raises on the Hammer Strength hack squat
-Seated calf raises, but the knees are not bent. this machine: http://us.commercial.lifefitness.com.../calfextension
-I can make a makeshift seated calf raise by putting 2 25s under my toes and using the lying leg curl.
Which of these should I incorporate and what kind of reps/sets should I be hitting?
