way more. 10 inches would probably take 6 months by yourself even if you did like 300 a day.

Don't start programs til your around 15 guys.. and DON'T use weights when especially when your under 15 ur legs havn't finished growing yet.. there was a free air alert on the internet they took it down though... and a buddy of mine has started doing 1000 a day.. spread out.. its helping him.. so start higher than 100 thats not going to do to much.. but as a jump program im using jump soles its pretty good.. but its alot of work.. im 5'7 and iv been using them for 3 months.. i can now touch rim if that sais anything.

Well it may seem unreasonable but im aiming for 45" vert.. im at 33" right now.. the most iv heard of so far by jump soles alone is 17" which isn't bad.. if you got the extra money id definatly reccomend them..

How effective are calf raises in increasing vertical jump?

Please, read again recent threads about the same topic. there are things already written there that will be useful for you.
However, I'll repeat the most important things:

_DO NOT USE OVERWEIGHTS, until your connettive tissue has finished its developement and growth. If you stress too much tendons and ligamens, while you'll be able to see a satisfying growth in mass and power of your muscles, you'll put yourself in danger of serious complications and injuries for ankle, knee, hip and lower back.. You should really wait until you're 18 before using overweights.

LEARN THE KNOW HOW. Your body will have plenty of time to develop, your technique will be harder and harder to train as years pass by. Take care to learn how to jump now, and then become stronger.

NOT ONLY CALF: Calf is only one of the many muscles involved in a complex gesture such as jumping is. You must take notice that feet muscles, calves, the shinbone muscle, the quadriceps, all other muscles inside the thigh, abs, back muscles, and arms are cooperating to reach up to the basket. Thinking only about your calves will only make you deformed.

Again, the simples suggestion. Learn how to jump. Moreover, learn how to run. Vertical reach depends much on the horizontal speed you're able to change into vertical speed. If you are slow, you won't jump high. However, learn how to run and jump, and if you want to train your strenght, train it completely: sprinting uphill, several forms of jumps while rising the stairs and rope jumping are good total body exercises.

i guess since im a kinesiology major i have some credibility in saying that QUADRICEPS ARE WHAT U NEED TO WORK OUT. calfs are like for all lateral movements. not for explosive power. u need to work on rim jumps and jump squats not calf raises if u are looking for MORE EXPLOSIVE POWER. i bet you didnt know vince carter squatted 520 before the 2000 olympics. how much can u squat? also think about this for people who wnat a dumed down reason why calf raisers are not what u need for vert. do u calf raise to jump? or do u squat? i hope u know that u squat. so work on doing squats movements to work on VERTICAL leap increase. calf raises are great for working on agility though
