Weight Lifting Exercises : Weight Lifting Exercises: Barbell Calf Raises


What I’ll be performing here is a barbell
calf raise. You want to put a barbell behind the neck. What you want to do is stretch out
to your tippy toes, flex your calves, and then come back down and get a good stretch.
Flex up, back down for a good stretch. You want to continue this. I recommend high reps
for the calves. If you’re doing extremely heavy weight then you want to keep it low
reps of about 6-8, high reps about 10-15. You want to do about 3-4 sets. One thing you
want to make sure is that you concentrate on flexing the calf on top and getting a good
stretch on the bottom. If you want to you could point your calves towards each other
to work the outer area of the calves. Bring them all the way up. Good flex. Bring them
down for a good stretch. And that’s how you perform barbell calf raises.

  1. how many inches will i gain on my vertical jump if i do calf raises and squats for 10 weeks? will i be able to touch the rim(in basketball). i can already touch about mid net on a ten foot hoop.

  2. Not to the extent you are using everything else when you work out. Looking dis-proportioned isn't something ppl want.
