    Well I have been unhealthy for wayyyyyy too long. I am 19, 5'10'' 190 lbs (basically no muscle). I am moving back in with my parents for the summer to work and then transfering to a University. Anyway, we have this : [​IMG]

    As you can see, it doesnt really have much in the way of working out calves. I plan on working out on this machine for basically everything else (no squats obviously :hs:) But what should I be doing to work my calves? I would really like to be able to dunk this summer... Im just a few inches off. Any suggestions for working my calves?

    I plan on doing some cardio... we have a gorge less than a block away from my house... Its about 1.5 miles and probably has 2000 steps. Would just running that 2 times a week be enough to not require a weighted vest?

    You can take a dumbull and hold it in one hand, put one foot up like a flamingo and wrap it around the other leg. Then hold onto something with the other hand to keep your balance. Now stand on your tip of your foot and raise up and down.

    Flamingo raises ftw
