Iron Boots
Iron Boots are just as effective today for the very same reaseons they were “back in the day”: they are extremely portable and allow you to do a variety of exercises that are all but impossible with any other form of equipment. Here’s an ad for Joe Weider’s Iron Boots from the early 1960’s. Betcha didn’t realize that demonstrating is none other than eventual multiple-time Mr. Olympia winner Frank Zane?

Before there were leg press machines, a pair of Iron Boots was a pretty good way to condition your lower body. Demonstrating here is professional wrestler Adrienne Nichols from Cleveland, Ohio. This was actually from a photo shoot for Life Magazine in 1948.
