"When you weight train, what are you doing specifically for your calves?"
For legs in the weight room, I do squats and deadlifts on alternate lifting days. And about every other lifting day (3 days a week plan) I do those calf extensions under the leg press machine as isolation work since they fell behind
Yes, I stretch afterwords. Not before tho as I feel that led to a minor injury when I used to do that
@those that say shoes-
Man, I really don't want to have to get new shoes. They're so expensive. The ones I have are really comfortable on my feet and support well. I put probably 150? miles on them last summer if I had to guess, and maybe ten so far this year. I do have some older tennis shoes that I lift and walk around in everyday. I use those for runs whenever conditions are a little wet to keep my running shoes good and also like you metioned to rotate how I wear them and not develop bad habits by relying on a shoes uniqueness or something.
I do like the idea of a roller tho. That just looks like it would feel amazing. (especially on the hamstrings after deadlift day lol) Will be looking into that I think. Thanks.

September 2012- Made my goal of competing at feather weight for Bjj (under 149 with a little water cut)
Now I'm just trying to maintain around 152ish to leave me in easy cutting range. Also trying to relax and eat more like a normal person now, balancing enjoying life and staying healthy.
