Iron Boots & Course: The Classic Health Shoe & Leg Developer
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, think of iron sandals that strap on your feet. They utilize a classic dumbbell bar placed through the sole of the boot, allowing them to be loaded with standard size weight plates and used for leg, ab, lower back, hip and ankle exercises.
For many years, the Iron Boot was one of the signature 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. That leg development course is the blue one with John Grimek on the cover. They were also regularly featured in Strength & Health Magazine articles. Exercises included: leg extensions, leg curls, leg presses, bicycles, leg lifts and even ISO reverse hyperextensions (for hip strength and low back strength). Atomic Athletic President, Roger LaPointe sold many of those classic York Iron Boots before they were discontinued in the late 1990s.
Today's Iron Boot set now includes the Atomic Athletic Leg Development Course!
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.
