When im doing Calve Raises, I get some back pain in my lower back. Is this due to, too much weight? Or Just unproper form. I start with 45s on each side. Then put another 45 on each side after 2 sets of 20 reps in each set. Then after the 2 45s on each side with same amount of sets and reps i put a 25 on each side then do the same amount of reps and sets.

What could cause the back pain?

Use a weight belt for support, or do it the kind of natural way.

Hold two dumbells in each hand and go up and down 15 times slow and 10 times really fast like Tony Horton does on P90X that stuff burns.
