    Donkey calve raise challange


    Hello Every one

    I have a challange and it is My gym doesnt(or any gym in this radius) doesnt have a Donkey Calve riase machine. I am a little hesitate of asking gymee's to sit on my lower back. The back of my calves is a weak point and Donkey Calve raises are the best back of he calve , and viewed from the sdie calve puffer upper that I know of.

    I have thought of an Idea. Put the smith machine on my lower back and hold onto something. has anyone done this?

    does any one know any other variations?

    Depending on the Leg Press Machines you have at your gym, they can provide an excellent variation to the standing or seated calf machines.

    But I agree, Donkey Calf Machines kick ass. Last one I came across was in San Diego at a Frog's fitness center

    I could picture it working.. I would suggest using some type of padding in between the bar and your back though, I would also see if I could find someone to spot me while im doing them.

    Definitely keep the bar more on the top of your pelvis and less on your lumbars.
