I’m working out at a new gym starting this week and I realised that there’s only one calf raise machine here and it’s the standing version. When I tried it out I found that I’m a bit too short for it and I can’t get any stretch at all at the bottom.
I’ve tried shrugging my shoulders at the bottom but it doesn’t seem like that helped much. I can use the smith machine as a substitute but it’s the second most popular machine here after the bench press station.
The gym equipments here are poorly organised, they put the leg press and dipping station at the ladies only section so I can’t do the leg press calf raise as well. And also, do any of you guys know any good substitute for the seated calf raise exercise?? Thanks in advance.
