Add The Hip Press To Your Squat Routine

Coaches spend countless hours instructing their athletes to achieve a required form in the barbell squat. To progressively overload it necessitates each repetition be performed at the same appropriate depth, as a few inches of variance can mean significant difference in what is actually being lifted.

The Pendulum Hip Press was designed to target the most difficult region for athletes to develop when squatting, that is – the hips. It is the last few inches of the overall movement that is the most challenging. Adding the Hip Press to your squat program will not only make significant changes in the strength of each athlete, especially in the low position, but will also make noticeable changes in their range of motion.  Get Strong; train the hips.
