Unconventional Calf Training
Crush Your Calves with Unconventional Training
Calf training can sometimes be monotonous and what better way to
shake up your calf workout than with some unconventional
exercises. Trying something new can make the workout more
interesting, challenging and stimulating. Here are some calf workout
ideas that are off the beaten training path.
Smith Machine Version
The Smith machine is employed for all kinds of exercises but you
don't often see it used for calf training. It can work well to hit
the calves For best results, use a solid step base – one that will
support your weight and won’t turn on you but hold your body in
place. Unhook the Smith bar, and go up and down on the calves.
Leg Press Calf Work
The leg press is good for more than just leg presses. A leg press
machine is great for calf work. You use the edge of the platform to
push off with your calves. Make sure you have a good foot placement,
then start pumping out the reps.
The leg press machine has a big advantage – you can use big weights
with this option. In fact with some leg press machines you can use
huge weight loads and really blast your calves.
Another variant of the calf work on the leg press is to do it one leg
at a time. This will really let you focus in on each calf and give
them some concentrated, hard core work.
Single Leg Dumbbell Calf Work
Yet another unusual approach to calf work is to perform a single leg
standing calf raise off a step with a dumbbell in your hand. You can
get a good, deep stretch this way and target your calves for a great
range of motion as well as being able to zero in on each calf.
If our calf routine is stale, consider using some different types of
training for your calves and keep them growing.
