Leg attachment as pictured in warm up video
Lynnette Oliver posted a topic in EquipmentHey, Trying to find/ make a similar set up to the one pictured in the warm up videos. Specifically the wall mounted dip station and GHD/sissy squat/ect leg device. I saw the link to the Titan rack attachment (see below) but it's out of stock and doesn't look like it ships to Canada. Anyone know where I can get one? Haven't seen it on ROGUE either. https://www.amazon.com/Titan-Foot-Roller-Attachment-Power/dp/B07BR64GJK/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?ie=UTF8&%2AVersion%2A=1&%2Aentries%2A=0
Quad vs Ham/Glute Imbalance
Thomas Wiggins posted a topic in StrengthI have a pretty pronounced imbalance between my quads and my hammies/glutes. I have been able to work through most of the pistol squat progressions with little effort on the quad portions but I'm running into a wall on the glute ham raises. I work out in a standard office gym and so don't have access to a lot of useful equipment and I don't have a partner. What are some modifications I can make to the ham curls (since I know I need to roll back in that progression to something easier) that I can do without a partner? I'm doing leg curls at my body weight as an alternative for the time being.
Prime movers in walking

Leg training for rings?
Oscar Riaño posted a topic in StrengthHi guys! Once again a topic on rings I was wondering if some basic leg training in order to increase testosterone would eventually help to gain more strength on the rings. I know that heavy legs drag you down in the levers, planche and maltese work, but would bodyweight exercises for legs be beneficial? I've seen that, for example, Yuri van Gelder (one of the strongest rings gymnasts) has quite defined legs and they dont seem to disadvantage him. Legs trained with weights and low repetitions would make me just heavier, but what kind of impact would have a bodyweight leg workout in my ring performance?? thank you in advance Oscar
Working legs for testosterone?
Charlie Martin posted a topic in StrengthHi there, Just for context, I currently have a solid straddle planche hold of around 4-5 secs. I have very rarely trained my legs as it seems counterintuitive given that it would only make my planche work harder. However, I've been recently researching the effects of training legs and its benefits in terms of the amount of testosterone released into the body. It would appear that the pure amount of muscle in the legs/glutes can result in huge boosts in testosterone, which I figured would speed up my planche progress. What I'm wondering is: how can I train legs without adding much leg mass? My main fear is that my planche (despite the greater testosterone) will not improve by very much given the extra weight in my legs... What would you guys recommend?
