I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment How do I train my calf muscles?
@RobinAshe This isn't a topic I'm familiar with, but wouldn't the football players already have exhausted their training stimulus to improve their 40yd dash? Deadlift, power clean, sprint, and do plyos for a few years, and yeah, improving the 40yd dash is hard. What does that show, though?

comment How do I train my calf muscles?
I think it's a great question...but I worry that we don't have anybody who's read or who has the expertise to answer it. I guess making it specific to soccer wouldn't really fix that issue. It's a very deep question that I'd ideally like to see a roundtable of sports trainers tackle :)

I think a little specificity could help. What's the sport, and what's the current training regimen we're deciding whether to add calf-specific power work to?

comment Could a thicker pull-up bar explain my inability to do as many pull-ups?
+1 I'd like to note that while my answer mostly takes the opposite tack to this one, this is absolutely a strong possibility. I am normally able to tell when the issue is grip rather than strength when I do chins, but it's possible one wouldn't notice.

And what kind of diameter are we talking about? An inch? Three inches?

comment How many Burpees do I have to do per day to lose a lot of fat fast?
@MattChan I know a lot of people who hate long, slow, plodding exercise, and one good alternative in that situation is short, intense exercise. Sprints (or parkour) instead of distance running can do a lot to keep many people's attention and motivation.

@user3939 That's good! I was in the same boat--I read the book three times and was getting video form checks left and right. In-person form checks by knowledgeable people (not random gym rats) were an order of magnitude more helpful. fitness.stackexchange.com/a/4355/1771
