Where do you guys stand on this? After the main lift and assistance exercises you do one set of 20-50 reps of chins, shrugs, abs and calves? Overkill? Stupid question?
Calves are a really dense muscle group because of their use in everday walking activities and such, so it stands to reason they can take more of a pounding than most of us give them credit for...they also need heavy and/or more endurance specific work or even a mix, for them to respond well. Trial and error on that one.
