i have doubts about calf training as well.
Ive recently started to base my workouts around olympic lifts, doing these exercises more than anything.
Now even exercises like pullups and military presses seem like isolation work even though i know they're not.
the point is i feel sore calves after doing the Olympic lifts and was wondering if these lifts are good for calf hypertrophy.
Im training at home now so I dont have any calf machines to train with, so i will have to wait and see what happens.
