Calf Raises at Home
Take 2 dumbbells, 1 can be any weight and the other should preferably be heavier.
Sit down on a bench and place the smaller DB underneath you and place the pad of your foot on the handle and take the heavier DB and put it on your knee. Then bang out some reps.
Do the same as above, but standing, while holding the DB at your side. Do both of these for complete calf development.
Go as heavy as possible.
Standing calf raises hit the gastroc muscle, which is primarily a fast-twitch muscle; seated calf raises hit the soleus muscle, which is primarily a slow-twitch muscle
