The Flex Mini® vs. Muscle Dynamics Pole Squat

Like many other exercise apparatuses, the Muscle Dynamics Pole Squat machine is focused on helping users strengthen the muscles of their upper legs and buttocks. With the Muscle Dynamics Pole Squat the user works these muscle groups by the means of a squatting motion. During the routine the user wears a padded waist belt that is attached to a weight stack via a cable and pulley system through the foot platform. As the user stands up the cable pulls on the weight stack, which contains 100 pounds total but which can be adjusted to the userís desired level of resistance.

The Muscle Dynamics Pole Squat machine is over seven feet tall and five feet deep. It weighs five hundred pounds.
