Iron Boots – A full leg workout that fits in your gym bag
Before leg extension and leg curl machines there was Iron Boot training. Iron Boots have been helping athletes get unbelievable leg development for decades. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Iron Boots, they are a pair of iron sandals that strap on your feet. They utilize a small bar placed through the sole of the boot which allows them to be loaded with weight plates and used for several different leg exercises. For many years, the Iron Boot was one of the premier products of the York Barbell Company. If you are lucky enough to own a copy of “How to Build Super Strength, Health and Development with the York Leg Developing Course” published by Bob Hoffman in 1943, you can see many classic shots of the Iron Boot in action.
Our Iron Boot set now includes the Atomic Athletic Leg Development Course FREE!
The secrets of the past are now revealed. While Iron Boots are ideal for leg exercises, most people don’t realize that Iron Boots are also perfect for abdominal training. Hanging leg raises, and various forms of sit-ups can be taken to the extreme with the addition of Iron Boot exercises to your routine. They are also a very efficient way to add weight to your pull-ups and stretch out your hip flexors. No matter what you use them for, Iron Boots are worth their weight in gold.
Note: These are NOT made by Ivanko, and they are exclusively available at Atomic Athletic. One size fits all. Flat sole means you can now stand on one foot to do standing single leg exercises. This is especially useful for the martial arts guys. Each Iron Boot Set comes with the pair of Iron Boots, and the tough steel pressure buckle straps to keep them on your feet. It now also comes complete with the written Atomic Athletic Leg Development Course. Iron Boots only take “Standard” size plates, meaning that the hole is the smaller one (1″) inch diameter hole. Please do not confuse this with “Olympic” or “International” size plates.
