    Hey I'd like to get some advice on technique when doing seated calf raises. I wanna get the most out of the exercise. A couple of people have told me that when i put my feet on the platform i should shift my body forward so my knees go further over my toes, then when i do the positive rep i'll be able to get a better contraction.

    I'd like everyones opinion. I want to make sure im concentrating mostly on the gastrocnemius, so i can get that size im lookin for. Ofcourse soleus development is important too. Just want to develop my calves fully.

    I have no idea. But I did notice that it helped me to put my toes over the edge. Felt like I was holding on with my toes.

    I've got 3 other guys, including the gym owner doing these now! After seeing me do them a few weeks ago he asked me what that was and why only 1 set, so I said get on there and here's how to do them and you tell me what you think! lol
    They were cursin' me out but now they do calves DC style every calf day!

    Intresting theory... Give it a shot and see if it works. That's what bb'ing is all about, Learning new things and seeing if they work for you.
