If you’re reading this, then you are probably aware of the importance of good form when doing a squat and are looking for a solution to make your squats more effective. Whether you are just starting out or are looking to add additional resistance, the Ultimate Squat is likely to help.
Unlike a lot of “As Seen on TV” products, the Ultimate Squat truly helps. I am definitely a novice at fitness and my ability to do a squat was a laughable affair… but this has definitely helped me get much better. It’s such a simple design of a lightweight bar and a pair of resistance-type bands, but simplicity works. It’s virtually impossible to do a squat incorrectly with the Ultimate Squat. The Ultimate Squat could be easily used for creating other types of exercises too.
It’s not the prettiest thing to look at… I’m not a fitness model 😉 … but here I am using it.
The device itself is built very strongly for something that can so easily be taken apart and taken on the go. (They include a bag for travel and storage.) The bands can be easily removed for zero resistance (nice for us beginners) or added for more resistance. The bar is wide enough to fit all standard doorway sizes, so you can use it at home or on the go.
My only complaint is the rollers. They are squished by the other pieces while in the delivery box. Even after more than a week of use, they still haven’t fully rounded off. This can throw off the easy flow of motion up and down as you squat. I do believe these will smooth out as I continue to use the Ultimate Squat. (I’m giving this a 4-star rating for now, but if the roller issue resolves itself I will upgrade it to a 5-star.)
Pros: Easy to use. Improves squat form. Can be adjusted for different fitness levels. Portable.
Cons: Rollers are deformed and mess up smooth motion.
I received this at a discount in exchange for my opinion. As someone who relies on honest reviews to make purchases, I work hard to provide other consumers with a thorough, truthful, and unbiased opinion of my personal experiences.
