Squat Without Coaching

The squat is rudimentary in athletics – partial squat, half squat, parallel squat, full squat, deep squat, front squat, overhead squat, foot width, bar height, knee angle, posture, heel height, barefoot, belts, head position and more are all strategies to affect the muscle activity of the lower body of this basic exercise. 

Though the above nomenclature is fundamental to programs, the various techniques require coaching and teaching. The Pendulum Squat Pro is unique as it gives all the results that the coach and athlete are looking for. The apparatus and exercise requires only simple directions; step in the machine, adjust the shoulder width if necessary, lift the weight, release the lock outs and squat.  Your form will be excellent your depth can be set by the machines range limiters (S.E.T. system) and the trainee will develop his or her musculature equal to or better than a barbell with little or no instruction- pretty wild what technology can do when you want to Get Strong

Closed And Open Chain

Open kinetic chain exercises of the lower limb are movements, where the distal segment is unloaded and free to move. The opposite is true of closed kinetic chain exercises, whereby  there is enough resistance to prohibit free motion.

Closed kinetic chain exercises are movements such as squats, Pendulum Squat Pro, leg presses and lunges, while open chain exercises are actions like leg curls, leg extensions and the Pendulum Reverse Glute Ham.

The kinetic chain can be understood as interrelated joints and body parts working with one another during motion. This creates a chain of events that affects the movement of neighboring joints and segments.

The advantage of open chain movements is that they tend to be better at isolating muscle and often are selected for specific rehabilitation and used to accentuate performance. While closed chain movements in general would be classified as more functional and closely approximating movements that are used in sport and daily life.

2-for-2 Method

Some trainers, coaches and athletes use what is called the 2-for-2 Method for increasing training load. The rule is if the trainee can perform two or more repetitions over one’s ‘repetition goal’ in the last set of an exercise, for two consecutive workouts, the weight is added for that particular exercise the next training session.
