    Your question doesn't even make any sense. You're looking to play a sport for the sole reason of developing your calves?

    You'll have to excuse me for saying thats fucking stupid.

    I go to my lake cabin where its like a 40 degree incline from the cabin to the water bank, put some weights in my backpack and go crazy running up it. Then I jump in the lake for a reward.
