Has anyone else seen this? (Monkeyfeet)

https://animalhousefitness.com/products/monkeyfeet

As if I need another fitness gadget, but this one looks kind of cool.

I wonder if moving the weight further out on the lever (at the bottom of the foot) compared to more centrally located (behind the knee) makes a difference. Would that require more core stability?

That's the argument I'm going with to justify another fitness toy!

The only justification you need is that you want it. If you get one or a pair, it would be cool if you showed us pics of you in Monkey Feet Action.

The only problem I see is if you're doing a video you'd have to pause it to put the dumbell in place. It's not like picking one up with your hands. Otherwise, it looks like a clever idea.

I have one of these -- it's great for doing your own lower body work but it would be very hard to use in connection with a video. Once you have the boot on, you have to take it off to change weights: the "jaws" that hold the dumbbell won't open otherwise (which I guess is a good safety feature).

That looks really cool. I cannot "hold" a dumbbell in behind my knee at all.

looks fine. Gadget or what. We like variety in our exercise.. I'm buying drum sticks today so I can work them with my chair exercise and RevX fitness. and, they don't cost a lot..

too bad it's just for one..

just a thought, couldn't exercise bands, the cloth one works similar muscles. ?

I was thinking about this as well. Bands get a little ponderous for me, but I can definitely see if working for the loop bands.
