Gravity/Inversion Boots
Hard on the joints and ligaments or good for decompressing, vertical sit ups, iron cross progression and so on. Thoughts....

why would you think it's hard on the joints?

Ankles are designed to be compressed, not pulled apart? Not sure how much merit there is to that, but I think it is a legitement concern.

I think if people were meant to be upside down like that for more than brief amounts of time, our physiology and our biology would be completely different.
