On calves I like using a lot of partial reps and stretches. Like for example on standing or seated calf raises, after I reach failure I will do partial reps for 20-30 seconds, then hold it in the bottom position for 20-30 more seconds, you really need some guts to be able to hold that stretch after the partials! To me this is one of the most painful things in all of weightlifting, holding the stretch after failure on any calf exercise is almost unbearable!

Wow Jenkies! This sounds great!

Nothing seems tiresome or painful when you are working for a Master who
pays well, who rewards even a cup of cold water given for love of Him.

- St. Dominic Savio (1842-1857)
We must pray without tiring, for the salvation of mankind does not depend on material success, nor on sciences that cloud the intellect. Neither does it depend on arms and human industries, but on Jesus alone.

- St. Frances Xavier Cabrini (1850-1917)
