Reviews
Excellent heavy-duty calf platform. Easy assembly - Stephen T. Gordon
Rate: 4 out of 5
Product was on backorder, but the seller contacted me immediately and told me when it would be delivered. It then came exactly when he said it would.

This thing is heavy-duty. The only assembly involved was attaching the squat platform to the calf block with 2 bolts. I have not used the squat platform much - I prefer the flat floor. But the rounded calf block hits those calves hard. The surface of the calf block prevents your shoes from slipping.

Finding a way to exercise calves at home is difficult. Professional gyms can give up the space and money to dedicated calf machines, but most homes have a limit on both. If you've already dedicated the space in your home gym to a squat rack (and that's significant space), then there's no point in not owning this. Of course, a squat rack is absolutely necessary for this device:

You'll have the weight bar up high against the back of the cage. I have the weight bar resting on the horizontal bars that go all the way across the cage (in case I ever fall forward it will catch the bar). I get up underneath the bar with bent legs, push up, then do the calf extensions with the bar scraping against the back uprights - almost like a smith machine.

I'm protecting against falling backward by the back uprights. Although theoretically I could fall forward, there doesn't seem to be that tendency. But again, if I did the horizontal bars that go all the way across the cage would catch the weight bar.

Although it seems a little pricey, its a necessary product for anyone who owns a squat cage


Best Calf Block Ever - chill dog
Rate: 5 out of 5
This calf block is great!! It's much better than traditional calf blocks. It allows for maximum stretch and contraction of the calves, and the non-slip surface provides sure footing. The unit itself is very sturdy and well-made.

Very effective and heavy duty - Nemesis "Nemesis"
Rate: 5 out of 5
This platform beats back all competitors on the market. The calf raise allows the full range of motion, with or without shoes, unlike others which are too short and allow the heels to touch the ground. It is also very comfortable on the balls of the feet so that allows for more weight and consequently more stress to be placed on the muscle. The squat side of it is also perfect. It is a heavy duty product for lifetime use and it even has a handy handle that makes carrying it to various places in the gym much easier than I would have thought. The handle seems placed at the balance spot on the equipment so it's very functional and easy to use.
