I am having trouble with calf raises at home. I have tried holding the barbell infront of me (like top of a deadlift) and with the barbell on my shoulders. I can't keep my balance and I have to bob up and down way too fast.
What do you guys who workout at home do for this?
I use my power cage and my dip/chin weight belt. I strap the weight around my waist with the weight belt, stand inside the cage and hold the uprights for balance, and do single leg calf raises. Works very well.
Hmm that sounds like something I could do just need to get a weight belt. I use about 100kg (225lbs) for calf raises is that really hard to have that on your belt?
Well, if you're married, or have kids, or a dog that's willing...lol...donkey calf raises. Always fun.

Thanks, single leg ones didn't even cross my mind for some reason!
Do you go so heavy on them that you're doing the 6+2+2+2 thing in HCT-12, or do you go higher rep?
How much reps and weight do you guys do for calf raises? (not doing to do the same, just curious)
^--I cycle rep ranges but personally have had better results with low rep calf raises.
