Stirrups

About a year ago someone posted some information and a link to a special kind of stittup.


They looked more or less normal except they looksed more like a step with the foot resting spot very wide. Wide in that you could put your whole foot on the bar and it acted like a wide step ...not the thinner bar that is normal for stirrups. Sort of looked like a cage not not quite.

I believe it was stated they are good for weak ankles and good for endurance. They may have been S America in origin but I believe there may be a place in the US where they can be ordered.

Does anyone know what I am referring to and their actual name or link to where they can be found ?

Well, I'm not sure where you'd get a 'stittup', but I do know what you're talking about, though the name escapes me.

Yes, used by endurance people...is there an endurance forum on this site?

See, I was so totally not helpful there.

I dunno how those would be with bad ankles, but I'd like to try since I destroyed my calcaneofibular ligament.

I must not be old enough, because I don't get the "pot stirrer" reference.

Meh, maybe I'll get it in 40 more years.

Ah, I see.

I just figured I had to be as old as you to understand.

LOL MIEventer, the term refers to stirring a pot over the stove to get things going - to mix it up. So that a "pot stirrer" is someone who would jump into a conversation to get everyone going.

(I'm almost as old as Spyder)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
