    How to go about asking for a partner for donkey calf raises?


    Heres the deal. My gym doesn't have any donkey calf raise machines available so I am going to have to get a partner to help me out. The thing is I don't know anyone. Would it be gay to ask some random guy at the gym to help with donkey calf raises? I would need him to sit on my back while I do the calf raises.


    My main concern is to not look gay. This exercise is totally gay to do, but it works wonders for the calves.

    What type of guys should I ask to sit on my back? I've thought about asking the body builder types because they probably understand the importance of this exercise for calves and are probably gay themselves so they won't mind as much. Maybe I can ask the gym staff that work there. I need someone heavy, about 200+ lbs.

    Any suggestions? Of course I would be glad to return the favor if my partner wanted to get some reps in himself.

    Do what you gotta do. As long as balls are not touching of course.

    Honestly you work the muscle the same way if your doing calf raises on a leg press but if you want an alternative to a true donkey calf just load up a dipping belt and preform the movement. If your dead set on doing a donkey calf with a partner I would at least have the common courtesy to buy them a few drinks before and the juice bar to get them loosened up....

    Arnold did it, but im sure he plowed both of the chicks that was on his back. Asking another guy is the gayest thing ever though.

    just find a gym with a rainbow sticker on the front door, and i'm sure they'll do any act with the word "donkey" in it with you.

    good luck with that.
