The king of lower body exercises. Performed safely with the Exxentric kBox and harness for maximal results even with imperfect technique skills.
Overview (definition and rationale compared to other exercises)
A basic exercise with many variations important for all subjects ranging from rehab patients to elite athletes. Suitable for training of primarily quadriceps and glutes. The strength in squat is highly correlated to improved results in jump height and sprint speed.
Usage (how the exercise is performed on the kBox)
In the kBox you can do squats with restricted depth, traditional concentric-excentric training and using eccentric overload. You can use the ergonomic harness or front squat with the kBar. Overload can be performed in a number of ways using delayed eccentric action, lateral overload och impulse overload [förklaras].
Benefits (motivation compared to weights)
As compared to using traditional free weights or gravity based equipment, performing squat exercises on the kBox has multiple advantages. The possibility to limit the depth of the exercise ensures safety [utveckla]. The ergonomic harness avoids the need to use arms or hands, and avoids risk of injuring… [utveckla].
