I live in Tamarindo, Costa Rica and recently took over the management of the Gym in town.
Like most gyms around the world, space is at a premium and I need to be selective in what equipment I choose as inclusion of one piece usually means exclusion of something else.
With the large exception of a power rack, I'm pretty satisfied with my set up. However, I have nothing directly targeting calves.
What equipment do forum members recommend for calves? Most of my members curently are using either the leg press or smith machine (with a 4" wood block I've provided). I've read the posts targeting calves and most of the routines involve standing machines. Are seated calf machines out of vogue? I likely only have room for one additional piece of equipment so I would like to hear opinions with this in mind.
Thank you in adavance, and I look forward to your opinions. If any of you find yourself in Tamarindo, be sure to stop in!
