Measure and record. Do heavy weight, low reps, no rest in between sets, go front, open toes, close toes, circuits, after that massage the muscle and rest for 45 seconds max, do 5 sets. Do this twice a week for a month. Then rest a week, repeat. Don't forget to measure progress( with measuring tape). Good lock.

Muscles that you use the most often need to take a beating if you want to see results.. Muscles that you don't use often will respond much faster.. That's what I've noticed.. So when it's calves day.. Hit them hard.. Mix it up like Bryan recommend and make sure you squueze and contract the muscle fully..

Sitting calf raises, brother... So it's not your Achilles doing most of the work. They really isolate the calf. But you are going to have to OVERLOAD the muscle with isolation. Sit down, put a towel over your knees and start piling on plates , a lot of them... there are different foot positions you can experiment with to isolate different parts of the calf muscles... Remember to pause at the top of the movement to really work it... There it is, bro. On leg days, make sure you do that max rep 3 series. You'll get results. If not, I don't deserve to be called The Guru.

The way only way,is to combine the standing calf raise and the sitting calf raise..they both need each other for growth..and as already said,overload them..either with bigger load,or a lot of descending reps,like 18-8..they will be forced to grow..could luck
