Squatting Through The Roof

When something is very high or has increased dramatically the idiom “through the roof”  is often used. The number of techniques coaches use to improve an athletes barbell squat, it can be said is -“through the roof”!  To improve the barbell squat a coach may have the athlete; work on technique, different bar positions, work on core strength, upper back strength, adjust an athletes grip, build hip strength, change the type of bar used, change shoes, do pause squats, do box squats, speed squats, increase flexibility, revisit motivation, look at rest intervals, change the number of days per week training occurs, adjust routines and much much more.

The Pendulum Squat Pro allows each athlete regardless of limb length and skill level to quickly, with almost zero coaching, get into a position of what may be deemed ‘perfect form’. Having great form through an entire squatting movement increases the strength of the structures that the coach is trying to augment by using many of the aforementioned methods.

If an athlete is weak in the bottom position simply top load the Pendulum Squat Pro machine during the squating movement. If the athlete struggles near the top of the movement bottom load the Pendulum Squat Pro. To improve squatting strength and form simply cross load the machine with barbell plates on the high and low weight sleeves.

Without question training on the Pendulum Squat Pro will make any athletes barbell squat go through the roof with little or no coaching……  A great way to improve technique and Get Strong.
