Unlike current hip belt machines, our version does not use a pulley system or a fixed leverage arm. This is a pure free weight movement that utilizes novel loading pin on guide rod technology. Consequently, there isn't a neuromuscular disconnect between you and the load tension.
Because it is a free weight squat, the lifter is able to sit back into their natural range of motion to really work the hips, glutes, and hamstrings. A built-in adjustable box also allows the lifter to perform box squats without the balance and quad dominant issues that are common flaws when performing this exercise with fixed arm versions of the belt squat.
From a pure safety perspective, because the weight load is perfectly centered below the lifter, it reduces the potential shearing impact on the low back that comes with other hip belt squats that are on the market. In fact, because the weight is perfectly centered when using with band resistance, there is a traction effect as the lower vertebrae are pulled apart (decompressed) and there is a dynamic stretch of the hip flexors. Hence, the MD- Mobility and Decompression!
Squatmax-MD is ideal for all athletes, and not just those with low back or shoulder impingement issues! For busy high school gyms where space, experience and adult supervision are at a minimum, this is a real alternative to barbell squats. With its unique design, no spotter is needed. It allows you to load the weight, hook and go!
