Monday Morning Madness: #59 - The Ultimate Squat Review




Squatting is a simple exercise that can be done in a gym or at home with or without a weighted barbell. The exercise can be done in a just a few minute and it can help strengthen your thighs, hips and buttocks; though if you using a barbell, it can improve your back.

While I have a few workout DVDs that calls for many squats, I never do weighted squats with a barbell as it puts too pressure on my back. This is where a squat rack would comes in handy, but sadly I don't have room for one in my home.

A few weeks ago, I was sent The Ultimate Squat (formally called 2-Minute Booty) to test out and review.

What exactly is The Ultimate Squat?


Well, it's a 3-piece snap-together barbell with two resistance bands and foot straps. There are three foam pads on the barbell - one is for your neck and the other two are for your hands. Additionally, there are foam pads near the ends of the barbell, so you can brace it against a doorway.

How do you use The Ultimate Squat?


All you have to do is attach the resistance bands to the barbell. Slip your feet into the foot straps. Pull the barbell over your head and rest it on your neck (back of your shoulders). Place your hands on the barbell grip pads and start squatting. The resistance bands will help straighten your back and put some resistance on your highs, hips and buttocks.

Final Thoughts: The Ultimate Squat didn't look like much when it arrived on my doorsteps in a "2-Minute Booty" box. The company had recently changed the name to "The Ultimate Squat," which in my opinion sounds a lot better. It comes disassembled, so it looked smaller that what actually was. The barbell comes in three pieces, which only took me about 10 seconds to snap together. The resistance bands have to attached the barbell, which once again only too me a few seconds to put together.

Pros:
  • Simple To Put Together
  • Helps Straighten Shoulders/Back
  • Helps With Proper Form

Cons:
  • Resistance Bands Are Light (For Beginners)

Overall, I do like The Ultimate Squat; it's simple to use and only takes a few minutes out of your day. The only downside is that it only comes with two light-weight resistance bands, though you can probably replace them with heavier ones, if needed.
