Calf Raises

Hello friends. Just back from the gym. 

Today I focused on legs, especially calf raises.

Of course, anyone who lives on a cattle farm does calf raises all the time :-) 

I'm certainly no role model for impressive calf development, but that doesn't make the exercise less important. Just like any other muscle, they have to be trained within a few reps of failure if you really want them to respond. For best results you're going to want to emphasize letting your heels hang down as far as possible and also making sure you're not just bouncing out of the bottom position by using momentum on every rep. Then make sure you come up as high on your toes as you can. 

Tomorrow it's back to upper body. The fun never ends!
