Proformance Plus PPS-238 Standing Calf - The Proformance Plus Standing Calf by TuffStuff allows you to train your calves through a full range of motion with a load heavy enough to stimulate growth in this often stubborn muscle group. Train your calves with purpose, not just as an afterthought at the end of your workout, and soon friends will be commenting that they more resemble cows than calves. The key to calf training is both load and volume. High rep sets work well, and 5 sets of 20 reps with as much weight as you can handle using good form is a tried and true formula to force those calves to respond. Good form means a full contraction at the top paused and squeezed for a one thousand one count and a full stretch at the bottom.

The design of the Proformance Plus Standing Calf Machine makes these pristine reps all the more possible. The non-slip foot plate is angled perfectly so you can get a maximum stretch and contraction on every repetition. The direct linkage pivot arms ensure true and balanced movement so that your entire focus can be on fighting through the intense burn in your calves to squeeze out those growth inducing final reps of each set. Even if you load the weight to its maximum of 400 pounds, the high density, contoured shoulder pads and non-slip support handles will keep your mind off the load bearing down on you and squarely on the work at hand. These shoulder pads also adjust with a convenient pop pin to allow users of different heights to train through a full range of motion. In short, this machine is designed to work as hard as you are willing.® is the EXCLUSIVE GSA Dealer for Tuff Stuff Fitness Proformance Plus and PRO-XL Sports Performance exercise equipment to the military and government.
