Success tends to leave clues. If you want to build a nice set of arms and shoulders, train like a gymnast. For glutes and hamstrings, train like a sprinter. For calves, bodybuilders can learn quite a bit from dancers.
The dancer's secret for well-developed calves is simply that they're constantly on their toes. It's basically repetition after repetition of bodyweight calf raises (a position referred to as relevé in ballet) performed on a daily basis. After a while it becomes almost effortless for them, resulting in comparatively monstrous calves. While ditching the weight belt for a tutu likely isn't in the cards for most, I discovered that there is a way to experience a similar calf hypertrophy effect.
I decided to perform 100 reps of bodyweight calf raises every day. As simple as that sounds, I did this every day for a month and was blown away by the results in my stubborn toothpicks.
