This is where people fail. By jumping in with too much, too soon.
Steve's advice about alternating between calf, and hamstring work is also a solid approach, depending on your own body.
Reeves mentions in his book that he did not do direct calf work intially, due to the fact that he had large calves from peddling his bike.
Reeves proportion guide is a good way to judge area's you may need to concentrate more or less emphasis on. Reeves physique proportion ideals are in the classic challenge thread.
As far as adding weight to dips. Add weight as you see fit, but you may find that as you work harder on your pressing and benching, and you have pre exhusted most of those muscles, you will not need to add any weight.
