The squat has always been the best lower body exercise available. Until the development of this machine, the only way to perform this great exercise was with a barbell, which is difficult and can prove dangerous. The Leverage squat machine duplicates the precise pattern of the squat, but instead utilizes a lever arm rather then a bar. You receive the natural plate resistance of free weight, but with the control and safety of a machine. The footplate is set at a comfortable angle that allows the user to take any stress off of the knees and lower back. There is also a start/stop handle that always allows the exercise to begin and end in the top position.
The LeverGymTM Advantage:
The lever arm drives the exercise. Weight plates are loaded directly onto the lever arm which simply replaces the barbell thus providing the natural feel and resistance of free weight with the safety and control of a machine.
The perfect motion:
By setting the foot plate at the correct angle and properly positioning the weight plate load, all stress and pressure is taken off the back and knees. The resistance is focused totally on the thighs to drive the motion.
An innovative slide handle bar is incorporated that allows the user to start and stop the exercise in the top position. There is also a fixed safety stop position built in.
