Half Squat, Parallel Squat, Full Squats

A man using the Pendulum Squat Pro

Half squats, parallel squats, full squats, front squats, high bar squats, low bar squats, sumo squats, single-leg squats, zercher squats, goblet squats, split squats, belt squats, box squats the variations are seemingly endless.

How to squat, how to modify style, optimal squatting depth, which muscles are targeted with what form has been a matter of debate for decades and the results of said adjustments and movements are still controversial. Amplitudes of the involved musculature, such as the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, adductor longus, longissimus and iliocostalis have been and are still being studied.

Instead of an individual adjusting to the barbell, which requires specific techniques based on their structure, the Pendulum Squat Pro loads each athlete based on their anatomy. This allows an athlete to apply as much force as he or she is capable of at every angle under load.  As the athlete squats the musculature is always experiencing a constant tension allowing, as well as requiring all the available tissue that is capable of propelling the body upwards to an erect position to participate.

Just load the Squat Pro and get to work. The form that is used is determined by one’s lever system enabling any athlete to apply as much force as they are capable of mentally and physically to complete the task.
