Efficacy of Traction Tripod and Bib Hanger
Traction Tripod and Bib Hanger
In addition to weights , I have been using a spring loaded (camera tripod) that can pull up to 20 lbs force as measured by the spring mechanism integrated into the center component of the tripod. One can order this device from a site called Trac-Man (I have no affiliation with this company) or build one from a camera tripod and spring mechanism that indicates lbs of force (similar to a fish scale).
You might look at this is a complement to weights. It is particularly useful in the upright position and varying angles to upright, whereas weights are particularly useful for BTC and variations of BTC. The Bib hanger works flawlessly with the “Traction Tripod” as it does with weights.
One can basically think of this in an analogous way per body building equipment, that is you have free weights that are optimal for certain moves and machines that are optimal for other body building moves. I view this as an exciting option and felt I would be remiss if I did not mention the idea.
Happy New Year and best regards to all,
