Donkey Calf Raises can be performed free (no weight) off a calf block, on a Donkey Raise Machine (these are rare!), or, as demonstrated, weighted using a barbell pad and calf block with a smith machine.

I must admit, I've never seen anyone else (other than my clients & I) perform Smith Machine Donkey Calf Raises, however, if your lower back's fatigued from heavy squatting, it's a great alternative to rudimentary heavy Standing Calf Raise exercises.
