Gravity Boots

This morning at the gym I watched Michelle (friend) put on gravity boots and pull up on a bar and hang upside down. It looks so incredibly fun and so I went over and talked to her about it. She then let me try it. After about 5 minutes of trying to get up (and looking rather ridiculous) with many laughs from people around me, my friends and even my bishop- I finally succeeded!! I expressed a very loud woohooo. It felt so wonderful on my back and really worked my stomach muscles! I think I might actually attempt it again sometime.
Here is what you strap to your legs! (Like Ski Boots)
It has a metal hook on the back that you put over the bar!
After just one work out- this is what I look like! hehe Apparently the military likes them too!
Wouldn't this be fun to watch :)

I've decided to get one at home and each morning while I read my scriptures I will hang upside down- what do you think?

That's crazy! It looks like an intense workout though!

Awesome. You are braver than me. Keep up the good work. Enjoy the scriptures.

Wish I was there to witness it! That would have made my day!

Oh wow--that sounds interesting indeed! So what do you do, just hang there, or do you try to come up and do cruches or something?
