    Front Squats - 4*6
    SLDL - 4*6
    Barbell Jump Squats - 3*3

    I first started doing jump squats as a vertical jump power exercise for rugby but now after doing them for the past 3 months or so my calves have grown significantly. I would recommend this exercise instead of calf raises.

    Same barbell position as in back squat but with with a wider grip. Squat down to semi-parallel and then immediately straighten and jump as high as you can pushing with your legs and calves. Land and immediately squat down again. Repeat it for as many reps as you need. Best rep range IMO is 3-5.

    You could even try contrast training, I think its pretty cool. Do 1 rep with 90-95% max back squat, then do 10 jump squats with 20-25% max immediately.

    Cheers.

    .... - i can only see the barbell crashing down onto my traps/back though? Doesen't this exercise hurt.. - though presumably you can't have much weight on the bar?

    Skrewdriver, the first couple of weeks it was quite painful but now I have a 25kg disc on each side and there are no probs.

    I'll give them a go. I can imagine them being great for calves.

    I may have a go at jump squats holding a couple of dumbells too..

    all i have ever done is alternating front and back squats i would maybe just add 2x8 to failure on leg extensions if needed
