York Expander Dumbell and Stirrup Course Wall Chart with Modern Strap Stirrup
Add 10 More Exercises to Your Cable Spring Chest Expander Routine
The York Expander Dumbell and Stirrup Course became an instant hit with lifters and bodybuilders alike. We believe that Bob Hoffman published this course in the late 1930s, using photos of real York lifters, such as: Art Levan and John Grimek. With 10 detailed exercises and a photo for each one, posted on your wall, it was simple to follow.While no one seems to make "stirrup handles" for cable chest expanders today, one of our customers told me how he was using our Heavy Duty Iron Boot Straps as stirrups, based on this course. Owning a mint condition copy, I quickly ran to the gym to try out this idea. Guess what? It works! In fact, I've got a pair of those antique stirrups and the straps work even better. With some experimenting, I decided that a single 6 Foot Strap and 2 Rings work even better. The rings keep your straps from getting chewed up by the spring clips and the long strap is highly adaptable to your physique/frame and exercise.
Half these exercises I've never seen on any other chart! I've been collecting cable type strand pulling charts and courses since Tommy Kono called me up at York Barbell wanting to buy a set, in 1997! I thought he was joking with me, but he was serious as a heart attack. Apparently, Hoffman took sets with the team when they did demos. Those old York guys trained with them all over the world. They were the portable gym of the day. Use this course and maybe, just maybe, you can build some of that same old York Barbell Club strength.
