Yeah, but I need to work on them, so it has to be done. I think pumping up after the real work sets will induce the sarcoplasmic hypertrophy. For now, I'm shaping, not so much building...

I want results, not fun!

Isometric holds(especially for calves) would cause me to cramp or get injured. I can get really intense contractions and I have to be careful. Most isometric programs recommend starting with 3 seconds and working up to 10 seconds. A minute is a bit...insane.

Just put the lady up a few inches and go to work.
You'll forget you're training your calves.
