For standing calf raises I tend to rock a bit on the last few reps to cap off a set.
I saw this video by bios3training (don't know if you've heard of him) but he said doing stuff like partial bench presses is pretty good for improving control of negative reps. Like the Spoto Press. What do you think of this? It makes sense but then again you might as well to full ROM
