    Eh, I won't contribute anymore.
    Once again those exercises don't just use your calves. There is more than one muscle in your legs.

    You carry that amount of weight around on your calves every day anyway, so it's really not a stress for them. Push them harder with something heavier (like, at least 25% more than your bodyweight), and you'll see results.

    In the one month that I had a gym membership (at the same World Gym, incidentally), I used to do 5 sets of 15 reps each at 240kg (which is as much as the machine could carry IIRC) on the standing calf raise. Would get tough towards the end, and burn like hell the next day, but putting your muscles under stress they're not usually under is the way to make gains.
    Yeah he carries around 80kg everyday... And then he doubles it

    How the fuck is that not unusual stress?

    I know that upper legs play just as big a part in movement, but downward force etc. (when taking off and landing when running and jumping) puts poundages and stress through all parts of your legs that are far greater than your bodyweight, so just your bodyweight wouldn't be (or at least shouldn't be) an unusual or especially difficult stress for your calves to manage to lift.

    He wasn't doubling it though. He said he was doing 80-90kg on the calf raise. Unless he weighs 45kg, that's not doubling anything.

    Short of going to a gym right now and showing everyone you can do it, what proof does anyone here have that they can lift the numbers they claim to? Again, not sure what motives I'd have to lie to complete strangers on the Internet. My life isn't that meaningless.

    You still raise your body weight + weights.

    Most people don't post ridiculous numbers which invoke skepticism tho

    I train with Crosby2Malkin and I have trained with Demba Ba. If I started claiming I could bench 100kg to 12 reps, I'm pretty sure I'd get called out for it.

    Also, others that have claimed decent lifts have posted pics a proof of their size* to make it more believable.

    240 kilo?!
    There are juiced up powerlifters at my gym that struggle through 5x15 at 200!

    You sure the weights weren't in lbs? I'd find 5x15 @ 110kg a bit more believable... tough tho
