You follow with three working sets of seated calf raises, going up to 185 pounds. As with the standing raises, you’re careful to get a full stretch and, after a hitch in each rep, a full contraction. For your next-to-last set, you do 10 reps, then you rest for 15 seconds and do eight more. Your final set is a grimacing, grunting drop set: 10 reps with 195, eight with 140 and eight with 115.
You finish up with raises on a donkey calf machine: 300 x 12, 400 x 10 and the 500- pound stack x 8. You do the reps Jay Cutler-style, all the way down and all the way up. It’s not about the weight; it’s all about the range of motion.
