Calves

I have absolutely no idea how to work out the calves. Any suggestions?

    I disagree. I think it's worthwhile training calves from the start, just like any other body part.
    Are you training at home or in a commercial gym?

    Standing calf raises with your new bar or dumbell calf raises.
    Have a look here:

    I don't like it

    If I were doing a full body workout I would choose something for each body part starting with the big ones. Something like:
    Squat.
    Row.
    Bench.
    SLDL.
    Military Press.
    Calf raise.
    French press.
    Bicep curl.
    With eight exercises I'd probably go for less sets, maybe 3x8.

    Hal, how many people have to tell you that the above routine is no good?? If you don't want to listen to advice, I for one, am going to stop trying to help you.
