    i am sure lots of people do them. Most do not post anything about calfs though cause not very many people are worried about how much they are pushing on calf exercices. Could you imagine someone bragging about their calf raise stats?

    I've been running stairs the last 4 weeks for calves and have received a good pump and sore as hell calves.

    You can use a "dip belt" to add some weight.

    What's a dip belt. BTW, what make donkey calf raises so much better? I see it as the same ass motion as standing calf raise, just bent over! And calf presses on the leg press machines seem almost IDENTICAL to donkey calf raises. Is there really a difference? I just wanted a donkey calf raise machine since it's touted by Arnold and some others to be the best calf exercise. Pfffttt.... pisses me off so much.

    My boyfriend and I tried them a while ago "old-fashioned style" when he leaned over the bench press bar with his toes on the edge of the spotter's ledge and I sat on his back. I'm sure we looked goofy but he said it worked better and gave him a better stretch than any other exercise for calves. If Arnold and Lou do them........I'm sure there's a reason.

    This is the only way my partner and I do them...every week. You just have to trust the person sitting on your back...and get over the weirdness of it. And you want someone heavy enough to give your calves some burn. They can hold weights, but this can get awkward.

    Try it...your calves will kill! And for even more burn, do some 1-leg standing calf raises (machine or elevated on a platform), then do donkeys...ouch!
