comment Losing Chest Area Fat
Even with the edit, the accepted answer is still the same as what would apply to you. No matter how much you hit the gym, or have or not had surgery, you cannot spot reduce fat.

comment How to avoid calf activation in isolation leg curls/extensions?
Soleus is eliminated when the leg is bent. If you dorsiflex, you should be able to nearly eliminate the gastroc. Perhaps calf neutral wasn't the best term to use, but it's essentially true.

comment How to avoid calf activation in isolation leg curls/extensions?
Odd. As I understand it, once the knee is bent and the ankles flexed, the calf should not be used. But, your experience pretty much matches mine.

comment How to avoid calf activation in isolation leg curls/extensions?
@TestWell - Thank you. I know the presumed etiology of muscle cramping, and I know what likely caused this one. I'm not looking for cramp cures, I was trying to see if there was something amiss in the exercise that I was doing.

I know the anatomy, and I was dorsiflexing. In totality, I tried about 4 or 5 different foot positions.

comment Any reason to (or not to) vary foot position in seated calf raise?
@Tyler - As long as the lower leg remains in line with the foot, and you aren't cocking your knee in or out, the motion should still be stable. It's only if you actively move the knee inside or outside of the ankle creating an angle at the joint that it becomes unstable.

comment Weight change but clothes still fit
Most likely water retention. Weight fluctuates quite a bit even during the course of a day.
