The Front Squat is a great exercise for the athlete,
bodybuilder, power lifter, or for people with general fitness goals, but the negative aspects of the movement bring a ton of
The crossed arm grip has
a load of down sides too. Narrow rack with less
stability, more crush to the shoulders and it's harder to keep the bar from rolling back
into the throat, or down the arms. No
wonder the front squat is usually tried once and tossed out.
The Sting Ray removes all these negatives from one very effective
and powerful exercise.
Protects the lifter's body so all new repair tissue goes where you want
Small and lightweight yet virtually indestructible for years of tough
Most strength coaches prefer
the Olympic clean style grip because it gives the lifter a wider "rack" on the
bar and therefore more stability.
The Problem with
this conventional grip is that it's almost impossible for anyone with shoulder, elbow or
wrist problems and most lifters lack the necessary flexibility in these joints. This grip also requires external rotation of the Humerus
(upper arm bone) stressing the shoulder joint and mechanically causing even more limits on
With either grip the bar can rest on the
collar bone, press down on the sternum and cause the lifter to run out of breath long
before leg strength.
The Sting Ray TM :
Lifts the bar off the collar bone allowing full expansion of the rib
Provides easy bar control without stressing shoulder, elbow, or wrists!
Allows the widest rack on the body by moving the load out to the front
Keeps the Humerus in a safe neutral position!
The Sting Ray is made of a
high tech polyurethane polymer. This material is flexible enough in the upward projecting
bosses to snap on and off the bar indefinitely, but rigid enough in the thicker sections
to act as a load distributor.
With the surface area
of the bar increased as much as 1600%, the biggest problem with transferring weight to the
human body is eliminated.
