i need some bodyweight exercise options to grow out my calves

any options besides calf raises

a variation of it would be ok.. but regular calf raises take forever until i feel something

Cycling, standing up.. on your toes... up hills.. and across the countryside Wink

Or sprint training and hill sprints

Well i use jumping rope for calves but i do mostly with one leg cause if i do only with two legs then i ll feel a general burn out in shoulder wrists etc and almost nothing in calves. Also u can super set jumping rope with calf raises (weighted or on one leg or both are other choices to make it harder)

Recently i tried some fast jogging almost running (not sprinting) and then some jumps , run and jump with one leg, or jump with two legs (like precision jump in parkour) or jump with two legs on the obstacle and do something like a squat and jump down again.) i dont felt burn in my calves but a general fatigue everywhere in my body, but the next day calves was so sore!!! , maybe cause its a new move that i dont use to train but as they were sore it means they worked for sure Wink

Hope it helps. Try and see what works better for u or what u like most to work with , i really must try hill sprints that Tim mentioned.

if normal calf raises are too easy, try 1-leg calf raises off a stair with straight leg, FULL ROM, slow and controlled at every moment (no bouncing!). this should set your calves on fire.
