I usually do 3-4 sets increasing weight each set for 20-30 reps each set. Last set usually to failure.

Depends on the person.

I have seen guys with great calves who do very little

Some have to go medieval to get growth.

Arnold said he couldn’t get his calves to grow until he went super heavy.

But for sure I think higher rep range no fewer than 12 reps.

A 20 rep set with these using a 3 second positive and 7 second negative is absolute hell. Even a 10-12 rep set with higher weight but same times is brutal. Like beating someone to death with a spoon brutal! :oops: A minute seems like an hour here.
