Why you should use a pendulum squat machine

Published on March 10, 2022

Pendulum squat machines are unique pieces of equipment. Although they may look formidable, with the right strategy and form, you can keep your spine safe and unloaded while you get in leg-burning, effective workout at the same time. Pendulum squat machines can be confusing if you have never used them before. Still, based on the many positive results that have been associated with the machine by individuals who have used the product in their daily training, there is apparent evidence these machines are revolutionising the whole mentality behind squatting.

Here are some of the benefits:

Building a strong core

Pendulum squat machines are great for building a solid core. They engage your lower back, abdomen, gluteal muscles, quadriceps and hamstrings, all while still activating your core. Since your core is responsible for helping you maintain balance and stability, it’s critical to train them regularly.

Strengthening your legs

Pendulum squat machines are popping up in a gym and fitness centres Australia wide these days. These machines are constructed to be used for the sole purpose of strengthening the leg muscles. The joints, tendons, and ligaments of your legs can benefit from using this machine as well. Some people may find tightness or discomfort in their knees, hips, ankles, and feet. This machine will help loosen up these areas and work properly again.

With the machine not placing the load on your back, it is the perfect machine for people with back injuries.

Rugged, compact construction

These squat machines are easy to use, set up and offer various exercise options. They’re also an economical way for your facility to add new equipment without breaking the bank. These Plate loaded machines are simple and easily adjusted for users of any height, making them perfect for schools, community centres, and even home gyms.

Beginners and advanced users

The pendulum squat machine is a great piece of equipment to own for any home gym. A great benefit of this machine is that both beginners and advanced users can use it. It is a great tool to help you build the strength needed to perform deep squats, considered one of the best exercises for your lower body.

Comfortable to use

The pendulum squat machine has an improved design compared to the regular squat machine. The movement is smooth, and the weight moves smoothly with the pendulum’s motion. The backrest sits against your torso to help you balance and, at the same time, reduce stress on your body. The footplate is designed so that users can easily adjust it for different heights. The feet do not have to be up against the machine’s base but can be placed further away from it. This can accommodate people who have longer legs and arms. Natural posture and balance are kept much better than on a leg press machine.

Compared to the leg press machine, the pendulum squat machine offers many benefits for any user. The most significant advantage is that your body is in a natural posture. As you sit in a natural position, your spine and pelvis are in the same position as when you stand. When you conduct the squatting motion, your upper torso has little to no load on it while you perform the squatting movement. All of the load is transferred onto your quadriceps, hamstring and calf muscles which creates a very deep isolated squat that cant be achieved in any other form without using the pendulum squat machine.
