    How to go about asking for a partner for Donkey Calf Raise?

    Hi Guys,

    My gym does not have one of those donkey calf raise machines so I am going to need someone to help me with the exercise. The thing is I don't know anyone at the gym. My question is, how would i go about asking someone there to sit on my back while I do the movement?



    I don't want to appear gay or anything. I was thinking I could wear a ring on my marriage finger to symbolize I'm not gay. I'm not married, but it would act as a safeguard. Or maybe I could ask a big body builder guy there to help me. He'll probably understand the importance of the exercise on the calves and maybe he's gay himself so he'll have no problem with it.

    Anyone else had this problem before? My gym does have a regular calf exercise machine, but the standing position on that one does not match the intensity of the donkey calf raise.

    I'd recommend buying them at least dinner first.

    Just ask someone. I doubt that they're going to think it's a "gay" thing so I wouldn't make a big deal out of it. If they come on to you after your workout, then that's something else, but I doubt that as well. Just ask nicely, and explain why if need be.

    Most gym regulars are helpful; however, this is an unusual circumstance. It might be beneficial to use an alternative movement.

    Most individuals will not sit on a stranger's back, regardless of the exercise.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    ask a girl or does your gym is only for males?
    or just ask naturally,don't try to elaborate too much so it won't seem that weird

    Ask a girl...although there are plenty of other things I would try for calves before this.
    Lift smart.

    I rear ended a car this morning...the driver that got out of the other car was a dwarf !!
    He looked up at me and said "I am NOT Happy!"
    So I said, "Well, which one ARE you then?"
    That's how the fight started.

    for the amount of effort this seems to take to ask somebody, I would just do standing calf raises. I would personally never sit on a stranger's back, and I'm not sure too many others would.

    It'd had to be the fattest chick in the gym. Wonder how she would take it. On the one hand she'd be flattered, because someone pays attention to her. On the other hand...

    I would say get a weight belt and hang weights from it you can also attempt to do them on the leg press machine or on smith in squat poss just do calf raise instead of squat

    Yep. Dip belt. Basically the same placement of weight but no awkwardness. 45s tend to hit the ground, I'm usually good with a few 25's

    I love this thread. Asking a total stranger to sit on his back, was the first tactic the OP thought of, to add weight to a simple exercise. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    but in the old Arnie days, that's how they did donkey raises - with a few guys on their backs.

    Do calf raises on a leg press. It's a similar movement.

    Just make sure you say (no homo) after you ask. This pretty much allows you to say anything.

    Make sure of only one thing.

    Make sure the person tyou ask is female.
    "To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other."-- Carlos Castaneda

    I've enjoyed reading this thread.

    If a weight belt is not an option, sure you can ask someone - but what kind of gym is this? If it is a hardcore weightlifters gym, then you'd probably have better luck than if it is a gym full of treadmills with "soft favourites" playing on the radio.

    I'd ask a friend or somebody. If none of your friends workout, then do them at home using a table, a block of wood to stand on, and your brother or somebody on your back (no incest).

    Excellent thread; would read again!
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    "The fitness and nutrition world is a breeding ground for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many of the things people worry about have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren't worth an ounce of concern."--Alan Aragon
