    the type you hook on a chin bar... how much do they go for?
    And are they worth it or not?

    I was recommended to get an inversion table for the lower back but I figure the g-boots would also allow me to do some exercises.

    I would be afraid of the boots coming unhooked and falling, I've seen someone using them before though, look like they'd be a good exercise

    i finally assembled my gravity table and started using it. i haven't gone to full inversion yet, but even at a 30 degree angle it really does help both my lower back and neck. the model i got is called teeter hangups f5000 i think and i had the option to get the gravity boots with it for 80 bucks more but i didn't. if you can, i would get a table over the boots timberwolf, the flexiblity of choosing your angle of inversion and the safety make it worth it to me.

    what if you couldn't get down and you toppled over the really expensive fish tank in a gigilo's apartment?


    :mamoru:



    no but on a serious note, you can do sit ups with a partner by hanging off his stomach with your legs...yeah sounds really gay but I do it for fight training. Jump up and wrap your legs around the guys waist with your hands around his neck. Let go of his neck, lower down and touch your head to the ground then go up and touch your head to his chest. If you can't do them by yourself grab onto his hands for a little extra help...this is more sport specific as it really works your legs to hold onto the other person, similar to keeping them in your guard on the ground.

    Yeah, the inversion boots are definitely recomended above the gravity boots. Glad you got it.
    As I said besides the cost I really wouldn't have the space.:hs:

    yea man, i couldn't afford it either but i am willing to put myself in debt when it comes to my health. i charged my visa and its been worth it. as for the space, the model i got folds up to where its only a few inches wide and a few feet high.

    Ha Ha. This thread is hilarious. On a serious note, I used gravity boots for a long period of time and they were absolutely amazing. You can work so much more and through a far greater field of motion. I wish I owned some.
