Exercise Index – Bodyweight Calf Raises

I have made a few posts about calves, and it’s the same point over and over again, you do calf raises, that’s it.

This bodyweight version done with one leg is probably the most effective version you can do, you know exactly how much weight you’re lifting, it’s a stable movement, it’s largely idiot proof unless you use bad technique on purpose.

Once you can do about 15 reps with your body weight, add weight by holding onto a dumbbell with the free hand.

There are no special routines for massive calves, train them 1 to 2 times a week, go to positive failure, and do this for the rest of your natural life.
