    Does anyone know how to setup a 3 to 1 pulley? You could use it to move your legs

    I've seen this fellow sci using a 3 to 1 pulley system to move his legs https://www.instagram.com/p/B8Bo4ecg_2k/ I tried a regular pulley and recrlined my chair with the pulley hooked over head and was able to move my legs up and down. A very worth while exercise in my opinion and after the short workout I actually felt a little sensation in my legs. But with the regular pulley it was not as smooth as it could be with a proper 3 to 1 setup. I've looked at videos and diagrams but can't quite grasp how to set it up. Does anyone here know? Please share, thank you!

    If you are near the coast, which is likely in Florida, try to find a sailing supply store, like West Marine. The staff there can guide you to appropriate low-friction pulleys (they will call them blocks) and how to reeve them with a recommended rope (they will call it line).

    Here are some sample at different degrees of purchase.
