    Hey !!! no one calles me a pansy.... well maybe someone.. anyways...
    The problem is the amount of weight I have to put on the machine makes it very awkward on my knees. Also, most power and strength coachs advocate the standing calf raise, beacuse you can use the most poundage and it involves more of the calf muscles than any other exercise.

    I think Health for Life had a product out on training the calves and another on forearms years ago. Two areas notorious for slow gains. They are the famous Synergy Abs people.

    i don't like the seated calve raises either. what i do is i stand on a block of wood and do standing toe rasies on the smith machine with the barbell on my traps.

    Try jumping rope barefoot with a weighted rope on a soft surface like a wrestling mat. The really cool thing about this is it works all the tiny muscles in your feet. It looks gay but jump higher for intervals.

    Ever hit your bare foot with a weighted jump robe. It's more painfull then getting kicked in the face.
