Squatting Made Easy

Probably the most frequently used exercise in the field of strength and conditioning is the squat. Pendulum has taken the complexity of this exercise and the need of understanding the biomechanics of the movement, for the purpose of achieving optimal muscular development out of the performance equation. 

The technique a coach explains is where the athlete places their hands, aligns their feet in the center of the foot pad and then is instructed to squat down. The machine adjusts the load in relation to the mechanics of the movement. Getting Strong will then come with effort.
