I recently changed my workouts around to incorporate a significant amount of running. Figure 3 days a week, 2 miles a day, gradually increasing speed. This has really done wonders for my calf development.
Also, before I ever lifted weights, my father had these Chinese exercise balls. The ones you roll around in your hand. Only these weren’t the hollow chime ones, they were solid, about 1lb a piece. In my 12 year old hands, they were one hell of a workout. Playing with these things constantly got me to a point where my forearms were bigger than my upper arms. There’s my experience with high volume and varying angles. Any body else?
