3 set of standing calf raise go for 15 reps
3 seated calf raises 12 reps
3 leg press calf 12 reps
some people do donkey raises of grab a barbell and calf raise in the squat rack as well. The calves should feel on fire and you better be sore after this if not it's not hard enough.

calves and abs are those muscles that you can train as often as you want as long as they are not sore because they repair faster than any other muscle. do them as much as three times a week.

go bigger and go longer than 15 reps for 3 sets. You train calves right and you'll look like the biggest little bitch in the gym....thats how bad they hurt. I NEVER see anyone go to FAILURE on calve raises. Calves will make you cry
