SUPER SQUATS® Hip Belt: The Ultimate Quad Torch

Pound your legs, but give your back a break

From Charles Ramsey through John McCallum and classic Soviet training manuals in the twentieth century to present day, the hip belt ("leg") squat is a proven tool that can help you gain weight, increase fitness, lift more, and jump higher . . . and the SUPER SQUATS Hip Belt is uniquely designed and supremely qualified to bring these advantages home to you.

Use the SUPER SQUATS Hip Belt to:

  • eliminate stress on your lower back and spine
  • squat safely, with the weight always under you
  • bulk up or trim down
  • give your body and mind a break from squatting with a bar on your back
  • add altitude to your vertical jump

Also, use the SUPER SQUATS Hip Belt for weighted chins and dips, calf exercises, and pulling and dragging. And for powerlifters or all-rounders interested in hip lifts, there’s no need to worry about whether this belt is strong enough—it holds 3,500 pounds with ease!


Hip Belt Quad Torching

The sensation I got from the movement resembled that of a set of Hack squats pushed to the limit. There's no lower-back involvement . . . Also, there's no friction or drag, and you're forced to use coordination and your stabilizing abilities as well. . . . Thigh torching is definitely this baby’s primary function, however—no doubt about it.—Steve Holman, IRONMAN Magazine, February 1992.
