What's the purpose of the calf raises you do? Anything in particular or just an extra movement you threw in?
Call me crazy but I am under the impression that when you go to throw the Thai Roundhouse you are doing a rotating calf-raise.

I figure if I am stretching the calf with the high-count set and increasing the power in the calf it could lead to a slightly more powerful kick.

I am happy that you made a reply here North, I see so many views but very little conjecture. Thank you for the advice on the wrist.

Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die
