I've been experiencing a little problem with calf raises. I've been doing them on a smith machine for quite a while now. (Yes I am aware of the dangers of the single range of motion).
Anyway, the problem is, that the bar is too heavy for my shoulders to handle. It hurts like a bitch and always makes me bruise, and often bursts little blood vessels on the surface layers of the skin. I fold my towel all up to make a kind of cushion, which helped before I was doing 100kg+
What can I do to combat this problem?
Inb4 man up/OP is a phaggot.
