    Many do them twice.

    I treat them like every other bodypart myself.

    In my experience, it all varies from person to person. My calves are pretty developed, yet i can get away with only doing about 5 hard sets per week. Some other guys must do a lot more. Experiment and see what works best for you

    if ya got some big ass calves, do em once a week, if u got little tiny baby ones and ur not doing any other exercises that already involve calves to a great extent (jumproping, soccer) then hit em twice week.

    i hit them twice a week. one workout is higher rep and one is lower. if i am running a lot, then i drop the high rep calf workout

    Calves twice a week for sure...mine dont grow without it. Abs, barely every to be honest...but I'd say 2-3 light ab days a week when trying to bring them out.

    im so glad i got genetic uber calves jumprope IMO is best ever for them if you do it boxer style. BEST because its nothing but continues negative motions

    Calves are my weakest muscle besides forearms so I train them both (calves and forearms) 2X/wk concentrating on lots of reps.
    Abs-200 crunches ED!

    I hate my calves. **** genetics, I train mine usually twice a week, but they still don't grow.

    I used to do calves and abs 3x a week..... but I found that in order to make my calves grow I had to do them ED I train.... and it works wonders. As for abs, I actually decreased them and only do them 1-2 times a week, because I've found working abs for anything other than strengthening them is pointless. If you want them to show, go on a diet & do some cardio!

    I do calves twice a week and abs every other day, it works pretty good for me I have seen a big improvement from doing my calves twice a week.
