Now the secret is out .... and it's nothing to do with their genes, diet or lifestyle.
Pharmacies, health stores, beach-front snack bars, all along Rio de Janeiro's beach fronts are selling to those in
the know a local powdered herb that has proven to be a very successful appetite suppressant which is as a side
benefit is also believed to help fight cellulite!

Thermogenic formula designed to increase thermogenesis and assist in fat loss, without eliminating muscle.
(Thermogenesis is the process of heat production in organisms.)
Now with Fucoxanthin.
Fucoxanthin is being explored for weight loss to naturally increase the metabolic rate. Japanese researchers
have found that fucoxanthin (isolated from wakame) promotes the loss of abdominal fat in obese mice and rats.
Animals lost 5 to 10% of their body weight. Although it's not fully understood how fucoxanthin works, it appears to
target a protein called UCP1 that increases the rate at which abdominal fat is burned.

People ask me everyday what was the strongest product that I have taken to lose weight the fastest. I took
Prothinspo's Hydroxylim/ Diet Slim...I chose this product because of two studies.... The first studied showed a
more rapid and effective weight loss than other diet products.This study set out to determine the efficacy of a
calcium/potassium salt of 60% HCA extract from Garcinia cambogia alone and in combination with niacin-bound
chromium and a standardized Gymnema Sylvestre Extract on weight-loss parameters in human volunteers. I know
blah blah, but  In a double-blind fashion,
60 moderately obese individuals were randomly assigned to three groups.

Dear Jodee, can I lose weight by using Cocaine?
Dear Prothinspo Member…

Cocaine is an illegal and dangerous drug - outlawed in most countries around the world. Many people speculate as to whether
celebrities ever partake of the drug to induce rapid weight loss. We can only speculate until they get arrested....Most people already
know that cocaine can make you lose weight.


Here is a story I found from New Zealand. A wealthy 51 yr-old property developer is a suspected drug dealer. He attempted to justify
his actions by claiming that cocaine was helping him lose weight.


"In explanation for his actions, the defendant stated that he had discovered taking cocaine in the evening suppressed his appetite and
helped him lose weight," the police summary said.
This may explain the success of Henderson's slimming regime. Last winter, Henderson seized on the Atkins craze and lost at least
24kg.
During the stressful 2000 when he was building the $250 million Princes Wharf redevelopment, "Hendo" was a big lad.
But by last winter, the metamorphosis was spectacular.
He sported a new wardrobe and cut a much finer figure on the waterfront.
Come the summer, he appeared even leaner, as the diet regime continued apace and his face shape changed markedly
."

I don’t suggest getting hooked on any illegal drugs to lose weight.
I only know of one diet product on the market that mimics the effects of cocaine weight loss. Of course it is new to the market after
many years of clinical testing.


AFTER DECADES OF RESEARCH...
Introducing the World’s First Chemically Altered Diet Pill designed to stimulate the COCAINE AMPHETAMINE REGULATORY TRANSCRIPT
(C-A-R-T) and Inhibit NEUROPEPTIDE-Y (NPY)!
Through years of study and breakthroughs in modern science we’ve discovered the key to long term weight loss success. And you
can only find this compound inside of THIS weight loss solution.

The reason you are overweight is because there is a YIN-YANG battle going on deep within your brain, inside the satiety center of your
hypothalamus. The battle is, C.A.R.T. vs. NP-Y… or Good vs. Evil.

C.A.R.T. (Cocaine.Amphetamine.Regulatory.Transcript.) is the “Good Guy”… and if you’re trying to lose weight it's your Guardian Angel!
The C stands for cocaine and the A for amphetamine because these drugs put this chemical into overdrive. When C.A.R.T. is
stimulated it increases your metabolism, reduces your appetite, and increases insulin to deliver energy to your muscles rather than
be stored as body fat.

NP-Y (Neuropeptide-Y) is the Villain. It’s a stress hormone that drives the eating chemicals into overdrive. When stimulated it will
decrease your metabolism, cause your body temperature to drop, and increase your appetite.

THIS PRODUCT was designed to stimulate C.A.R.T. and inhibit NP-Y, thus helping you win the battle of the bulge. (note: This product
does not contain cocaine, amphetamine, ephedra, or cannabanoids. We found alternatives to cocaine and amphetamine to activate C.
A.R.T.)
READ MORE BELOW..Here is what's in THIS CART Program and how this product works:
Decades of RESEARCH TO FIND OUT HOW TO COPY THE EFFECTS OF COCAINE AND WEIGHT LOSS..
After decades of research and scientific breakthroughs in the weight loss pills industry, we've finally discovered the key to fast and
lasting weight loss success.
And that key is only available in this CART PROGRAM.

The main reason you're overweight is the back-and-forth battle going on deep within the brain inside the satiety center of your
hypothalamus. The ongoing battle exists between the two neuropeptides CART and NPY ... also known as the good and the bad when it
comes to weight loss.

CART (Cocaine Amphetamine Regulatory Transcript) is your best friend if you're trying to lose weight. On the other hand NPY is the
enemy when it comes to weight loss. THIS PRODUCT was designed as the best weight loss pills to stimulate CART while inhibiting NPY
to help you
lose weight
safely and powerfully.

On the other hand NPY is the enemy when it comes to weight loss. As a stress hormone, NPY kicks up the appetite and signals
hunger. When NPY is stimulated it limits the metabolism
and lowers the body temperature.

THIS PRODUCT is a product which was designed to stimulate CART while inhibiting NPY to help you lose weight safely and powerfully
in a way the best weight loss pills have never been able to do before even from what was previously considered to be the top weight
loss pills.

What It Does:

Cocaine and Amphetamine kicks the body's CART into overdrive which helps to increase the metabolism, reduce the appetite and
increase insulin levels to deliver the maximum amount of energy to the muscles instead of storing excess calories as body fat. By
igniting CART,
This CART PROGRAM  product has become the best weight loss pills available!

Activators:
DiCaffeine Malate - 250mg
The rumors that Coca-Cola included actual cocaine when it was first introduced are actually true. When the drug was illegalized after
World War I, Coke needed an alternative to stimulate the mind and body while delivering similar benefits as cocaine. Caffeine soon
replaced the cocaine and Coke has remained one of the best-selling beverages in the world. In Fenphedrine we use one of the most
potent and multi-dimensional forms of caffeine combined with all-natural malic acid bonded to increase energy levels, stimulate
thermogenesis and promote greater mental alertness and focus.
The only way to experience the full benefits of caffeine is through DiCaffeine Malate.

Hops - 100mg
Commonly known as Hops, the plant Humulus Lupulus is one of only two plants in the Cannabinaceae family. The alkaloid Lupulinum is
extracted from hops and
works as a mild stimulant to trigger relaxation within the body.

Razberi K™ - 50mg
Subjects on a high-fat diet to induce obesity in a recent study (Morimoto et al, 2005) gained less body fat when using 1 to 2%
concentrations of this patented and proven form of Raspberry Ketone
than a control group on the same diet.

Cocoa Extract - 50mg
Cocoa Extract is packed with powerful constituents including methylxanthines (theobromine, caffeine, and theophylline), biogenic
amines (phenylethylamine, tyramine, and synephrine), amino acids (phenylalanine, tryptophan, tyrosine, others), minerals (with a high
content of magnesium), several antioxidants and non-psychoactive cannabanoid-related compounds to ignite the weight loss
process. The Pea in Cocoa Extract is an amphetamine-like compound closely related to the naturally occurring catecholamine
neurotransmitters and the amino acid precursors tyrosine and phenylalanine. PEA works within the brain to promote feelings of
pleasure and relaxation. Extracted from chocolate,
PEA is the leading aphrodisiac found in chocolate.

Ginger Extract (20% Gingerols) - 50mg
Ginger has been used for centuries to provide relief from gallstones and numerous other health conditions. Ginger helps flush bile
from the gallbladder to eliminate unnecessary waste within the body. Ginger has also been shown to thin the blood and lower
cholesterol to help cleanse the body and increase circulation.
This process speeds the metabolism and increases the flow of nutrients within the body
to provide additional energy.

Synephrine HCL - 20mg
Synephrine is a powerful weight loss ingredient derived from citrus aurantium. Synephrine HCL provides similar benefits as caffeine
and other powerful stimulants without serious side effects. By increasing energy expenditure, increasing the metabolism and
suppressing the appetite,
Synphrine HCL is key to signalling key weight loss functions within the body.

Thermodiamine™ (98% Evodiamine) - 15mg
Thermodiamine is clinically proven to reduce fat absorption within the body while increasing thermogenesis. Thermodiamine
increases lipolytic activity (the fat–burning process) by increasing the vanilloid receptors to increase body temperature.

Lipolide-Sc™ (98% Sclareolide) - 15mg
The powerful thermogenic properties of Lipolide enhance weight loss by supporting an increased level of lipolytic activity through the
Cyclic AMP. Cyclic AMP
helps the body produce more energy by breaking down excess fat stored within the body.


This is a high performance weight loss supplement that utilizes a formula that is first of its kind! This is the first diet pill to base its
formula on scientific research isolating the Cocaine Amphetamine Regulatory Transcript (C-A-R-T) and Neuropeptide-Y (NPY).

In short, CART is the good chemical component that triggers increased metabolism and lowers appetites and NPY is the bad stress
hormone that causes your body to lower in body temperature, decrease metabolism, and increase appetite. Adjusting the CART and
NPY in your body, Fenphadrine increases metabolism, reduces appetite, increases muscle function, and reduces body fat storage.

But science aside, THIS  is one of the most popular weight loss products on the market. It has consistently received the highest
rankings and feedback from consumers as being the Most Powerful Diet Pill. According to our independent research,
AND has 97% customer approval rating, which is unheard of in this industry.
There are multiple reports citing results ranging from 10 pounds per week to 33 pounds in just 3½ weeks.

Be persistent and patient, you’ll get used to the new form as I did, and won’t go back. Unracking Many people overlook the unrack
process – getting the bar out of the uprights. Yet everything you do before you Squat is as important as the actual Squat. If you unrack
the weight the wrong way, you’ll waste energy and tire your muscles before you start to Squat. That means less weight lifted. The
most important thing you must do before unracking the weight is getting tight. You must raise your chest and tighten your back before
you unrack the weight or the bar will dig into your spine. And you must save your legs and lower back because you’ll need them during
your Squats. Put The Bar Mid-Chest Level. If the bar is too high, you’ll have to get on your toes to unrack the weigh. This is unstable and
and thus both unsafe and ineffective for unracking and racking heavy Squats. Lower the upright so the bar is at mid-chest level when
you face it. Put Both Feet Under The Bar. If your feet are behind the bar, you’ll have to goodmorning the weight to unrack it. This is
stressful on your lower back, will tire it and is unsafe. One foot behind, lunge-style, is also unsafe because it puts uneven stress on
your hips. Put both feet under. Set Your Lower Back Neutral. I was guilty of this one for years. Do not hyper-extend your lower back
when you’re getting under the bar, ready to unrack it. Doing so will stress your discs and is thus unsafe. Keep your lower back neutral,
with a natural arch, but not over-arching. Squeeze Your Upper-back. The bar will dig into your spine, move around and hurt your wrists
without a tight upper-back. But you can’t get tight after unracking the weight because it will crush you. So raise your chest and pinch
your shoulder-blades BEFORE you unrack the bar. If you unrack the weight correctly, it will look like the top part of a Squat. Both feet
under the bar, lower back neutral, head neutral, chest up, shoulder-blades pinched, everything tight. Take the bar out of the uprights
using a quarter Squat movement, then walk it out. Walkout Before you walk back with the weight, take it out of the uprights by doing a
quarter Squat. The bar will go in a straight line up when you unrack this way. Then it will go back in a straight horizontal line as you
walk it out. This method wastes least energy and is more stable for Squatting heavy. Walk Back, Not Forward. It matters once your
Squat set is over: you can’t see the uprights if you rack the weight by walking it back. You could miss them, drop the bar and get hurt.
Better is to rack the weight by walking forward, but that requires you to unrack by walking back first. Take One Step Back Max. Taking
several steps wastes energy. It also makes the walk back after your set is over longer. So just take one step back with each leg,
done. Keep Your Legs Straight. You don’t need to bend your back leg when you walk out. Keep it straight and locked, it’s more stable.
Move from your hips, not your knees. Once you’ve walked the weight out, you’re ready to Squat. You should still have that tightness in
your upper-back that you created before you unracked the weight. Lock your hips and knees while you’re standing with the weight
ready to Squat, it’s less tiring and more stable. Squatting Down The wrong way to Squat is in a straight line down, with your knees
travelling all the way forward while your torso stays upright. This stresses your knees, doesn’t engage your stronger hip muscles and
is ineffective for Squatting heavy. Remember: Squats are more than just a quad exercise. So instead of just bending through your
knees, Squat down by moving your hips back – like sitting on a toilet. This will stretch your hamstrings and glutes on the way down
and engage them more. If your hip muscles work more and harder, you can Squat heavier, without knee stress. Push Your Knees Out.
Your knees won’t go too far forward if you push them to the side. You’ll also engage your groin muscles more, break parallel more
easily and avoid any knee twisting. So push your knees out as you Squat down. Heels shoulder-width apart and toes out 30°. Move
Your Hips Back. Again, think of sitting on a toilet. But make sure the bar remain over your foot and your lower back must stays neutral
while you sit back. If you feeling a big stretch in your hamstrings or wake up with sore hamstrings the day after, you’re doing it right.
Check Your Bar Path. Tape yourself from the side. If the bar doesn’t go down in a vertical line over your mid-foot, your Squat technique
is off. Check if the bar moves forward, over your toes. If so: check your bar position/stance, push your knees out harder and move
your hips back. Note that you must Squat down by moving your hips back and knees out at the same time. Otherwise your hips will do
all the work. Note also that it’s okay for your knees to come forward the first half of the Squat movement. But then they should stay
there while your hips go back and down. It’s harder to maintain proper form, and thus easier to get injured, if you Squat down fast. This
doesn’t mean you should Squat down slow – that will make you lose strength. But you should control the weight on the way down to
maintain proper Squat form. Leave Squatting down fast for later. Squatting Up Squatting up should be a mirror of the way down. The
bar stays above your balance point (your mid-foot) the whole time. Your knees stay out because that engages your groin and is safer.
And your chest stays up while your hips are going straight up out of the bottom. Drive Your Hips Up. If your hips move back, you’ll end
in a goodmorning with your hips doing all the work. If your hips move forward, so will your knees – this shortens your hamstrings and
kills power out of the bottom. So move your hips straight up as you Squat up. Keep Your Chest Up. You’ll end in a goodmorning
position, with your hips high and doing all the work, if your chest doesn’t stay up. So pinch your-shoulder-blades hard with your chest
up so the bar can’t move around. It must stay over your balance point (your mid-foot). Push Your Knees Out. If your knees cave in, you’
ll get twisting of your knee ligaments which can result in knee injury. So keep your knees out, inline with your toes. Your knees
shouldn’t move back or forward while you Squat out of the bottom position. Do not pause at the bottom of your Squat unless you want
to make it harder on purpose. Reverse the movement quickly out of the bottom by bouncing off your stretched hamstrings and glutes.
This uses the stretch reflex (the energy stored in these muscles on the way up) and makes the lift easier. Once you’re at the top, lock
your knees. Don’t try to “increase tension” by leaving your knees unlocked. Locked joints are more stable than unlocked ones –
especially with a heavy weight on your back, tired from doing reps. Let your skeleton carry the weight by locking your knees and hips
– it’s safer. Squat Depth Quarter Squats are bad for your knees because they mostly work your quadriceps. This causes weak,
imbalanced glutes and hamstrings muscles, which can result in knee injuries. Add the stress on your knees from letting them travel
all the way forward when you do Quarter Squats. So you should Squat deeper. The International Powerlifting Federation defines legal
Squat depth as your hip crease going below the top of your knees.44 This is how I’ve been Squatting for the past 14 years, breaking
parallel on every single rep, and it turns out to be totally safe for your knees. Break Parallel. Thighs parallel with the floor isn’t deep
enough. You must Squat down until your hip crease is lower than the top of your knees when looking from the side. If you can’t, widen
your heel stance to shoulder-width apart, with your toes out 30°, and push your knees out harder. Don’t Go “ATG”. Few people have the
flexibility to Squat all the way down until their butt touches their ankles. Your lower back will probably round at the bottom which is bad
for your spine. The point isn’t to show off how deep you can go anyway but to get stronger. So stop at parallel. To make sure you hit
parallel, tape yourself from the side and watch that video between your sets. Use your smartphone with a gorilla stand. Or ask
somebody to check your depth. But don’t Squat on a box to gauge your depth – you will remember the proper position through
repetition. Breathing Squats are not the same as running. You don’t inhale as you go down or exhale on the way up because that’s how
people hurt their lower back. The correct and natural way is to hold your breath while you Squat. This increases pressure in your
abdomen which keeps your lower back safe.45 That’s why nobody ever Squatted heavy weights by inhaling on the way down or
exhaling on the way up. Everybody holds his breath when Squatting heavy, I’ve done so for the past 14 years. Look at the video of the
current world record Squat, he doesn’t inhale on the way down but holds his breath. If you’re thinking – but my blood pressure will
increase if I hold my breath!!! Yes it will. But it will also go back to normal once you’ve finished your Squat set. Better: your blood
pressure will decrease as you get stronger at Squats because the stronger muscles put less demand on your heart.46 Breathe In
BEFORE Squatting Down. Do not breathe in while Squatting down, it’s unsafe for your lower back. Take a big breath at the top while you’
re standing with the weight – after you’ve walked the weight out and between your reps. Hold that breath, then Squat down. Hold Your
Breath At The Bottom. Exhaling at the bottom of Squats is like deflating a balloon – you lose all tension in your abdomen because the
air is gone. This puts your lower back at risk of injury and kills strength. The right and safe way is to hold your breath at the bottom.
Breathe At The Top. Breathe as much as you want between your Squat reps, while standing with the weight at the top. I’ll sometimes
take several breaths to recover between a heavy set of five. Just make sure you take a big breath and hold it before Squatting your
next rep. You won’t be able to hold your breath on the way up of a hard, slow Squat rep (a “grinder”). The rep will last too long and build
up too much pressure. In this case, you can slowly exhale as you go up. Or grunt by exhaling against your closed glotis. Or yell to
increase pressure at your “sticky point”. Racking Finish your Squat rep before racking the weight. Don’t try to take the bar from a half
Squat position into the uprights. One, you didn’t finish your rep. Two, you could miss the uprights and get hurt. Stand with the weight on
your back and your hips and knees locked. Then rack it by walking forward. Walk Forward, Not Back. You can’t see the uprights if you
have to rack it by walking back. And if you can’t see them, you can miss them, drop the bar and get hurt. So unrack the weight by
walking back with the bar so you can rack once your set is over by walking forward. Walk Forward Until You Hit The Rack. Don’t aim
for the uprights – you could miss them and drop the bar. Instead walk forward until your bar touches the vertical part of your Power
Rack. When it does, bend through your legs to drop the bar back in the uprights. If you rack the weight correctly, it will be a mirror of
how you unracked the weight and walked it out. Equipment Power Rack The Power Rack or Squat Rack is your most important
equipment for the Squat. You can’t Squat heavy and safely without rack – especially if you’re Squatting alone as I am. A Power Rack
has four vertical posts with uprights and horizontal safety pins that serve two purposes: Get The Bar On Your Back. Without Power
Rack, the only way to get the bar on your back for Squats is using the Steinborn Lift – tilt the bar on one side, lean under it, then drop
the bar on your back. This isn’t ideal though as it pre-exhausts your legs and can hurt your lower back. Get The Bar Off Your Back. The
only way to get the bar off your back without Power Rack is by throwing it on the floor or doing a reverse steinborn lift. The former is
an advanced technique that requires more expensive bumper plates. The latter is risky for your back at heavy weights. Miss Reps
Without Getting Hurt. If you get stuck mid-rep without Power Rack or spotter, the bar will crush you and get you injured. If you manage
to throw it off your back or jump under it, you’ll break your bar/plates unless you have more expensive bumper plates. You need a
Power Rack to Squat, period. Put the barbell in the uprights positioned at mid-chest level. Then get under the bar, unrack it and rack it
back in when you’re done Squatting. This wastes less energy than the Steinborn Lift or cleaning the bar overhead. It’s also a lot safer.
A Power Rack also has two horizontal safety pins to catch the weight if you get stuck in the middle of a Squat rep. Set these pins
slightly below your bottom Squat position. You don’t want to hit them during a good rep as this would throw you off balance for your
next rep. Once you’ve set the pins of your Power Rack, they’ll catch the weight if you get stuck. This is how I’ve missed Squats many
times in my home gym without spotter or hurting my back. Here’s an example video where I get stuck. Notice the pins catch the
weight and I get away safely… 379lb Squat double-fail | StrongLiftsUnlike a smith machine, the barbell is NOT attached to rails on a
Power Rack. So it won’t force you to Squat using a fixed, unnatural movement that could hurt you – you can move freely. And since you
have to balance the weight yourself, you’ll get stronger than on the smith machine. Aside from the Squat, you’ll also need a Power
Rack to Bench Press heavy and safely alone. A good Power Rack will last years – I bought mine in 2004 and still Squat inside every
week today. Here are several quality Power Racks I recommend for Squatting heavy and safely… Atlas Power Rack. Good: cheap.
Bad: no free shipping. Rated 4.8 stars on Amazon. PowerLine PPR200X Power Rack. Good: handles 600lb, outside uprights, safety
pins, pullup bar, cheap. Bad: too short to Overhead Press inside. 4.6 stars rating on Amazon. Free shipping. Body-solid Pro Power
Rack. Good: handle s1000lb, chinup bar. Bad: more expensive than the PowerLine PPR200X Power Rack. This rack is similar to what I
have. Titan Power Rack. Handles 700lb, 28 holes, chin-up bar, less than $300. Rogue R3 Power Rack. Good: pullup bar, high quality.
Bad: must bolt it down, more expensive. Short Power Rack. If you have a low ceiling, this shorter Power Rack will fit under a 6? ceiling.
If you lack the space for a Power Rack, the best alternative is to get a pair of Squat Stands. Squat Stands Squat Stands are a pair of
two vertical poles with uprights often used by Olympic Weight lifters. Unlike Power Racks, the poles are rarely connected. So you can
easily move the stands around when you’re not Squatting to save space. Squat Stands are also cheaper than Power Racks. The
drawback of Squat Stands is that they don’t come with safety pins. They’re designed for weight lifters using bumper plates who throw
the bar overhead on the floor if they get miss reps. Or who jump away from the bar. Techniques for experienced lifters that will break
bars loaded with iron plates. Some people doing StrongLifts 5×5 have told me they used Squat Stands with a pair of Saw Horses to
catch the weight if they got stuck on Squats. I’m sure you get used to it, but I still think a Power Rack is safer because the safety pins
are adjustable and the bar can’t roll off the pins. Also, you might not be able to put the uprights of your Squat Stands low enough to use
it for the Bench Press. So you’ll still need extra equipment to help you get the bar in your hands when you Bench. But if you decide to
go with Squat Stands anyway, here’s what I recommend… Valor BD-9 Power Squat Stand. Good: rated 600lb, stable, works for Squat,
Bench, Oh Press. Bad: the quality comes at a higher price. 4.6 stars on Amazon, free shipping. Watch out with cheaper Squat Stands
models. The less they cost, the less sturdy they usually also are. Which means they could tip over, break your bar and break your floor
(or worse). Olympic Barbell The Olympic Barbell is your most important equipment for Squats after the Power Rack. When you’re
doing StrongLifts 5×5, you’re Squatting three times a week to gain strength and muscle fast. So you need a good quality Olympic
Barbell because you’re using it every workout to Squat. An Olympic Barbell is 2m20/7' long, 20kg/45lb heavy and 28mm thick. The
sleeves to load the plates on are 50mm thick. The rest of the bar has knurling to provide solid grip. This includes center knurling for
your upper-back so the bar can’t move up or down when you Squat heavy. Many gyms have shorter, lighter and cheaper barbells.
These usually weigh 7 to 15kg, don’t handle heavy weights and bend if you load them with 2-3 plates on each side. They also often lack
center knurling which causes the barbell to move around your back during Squats. These cheap bars are the worst when their
sleeves are fixed. You’ll get elbow and wrist pain because the outside part of the bar can’t spin with the plates. Olympic Barbells on
the other hand have revolving sleeves which spin independently from the center bar. This is safer for your wrists and elbows. So you
need an Olympic Barbell, and the best one for Squats are Power Bars. These are stiffer than weight lifting bars and won’t bounce with
the weight as you Squat. Power Bars also have center knurling for your upper-back weight lifting bars lack. Get a Power Bar, it’s
better for Squats. A good quality bar will cost around $300. Yes, that is a lot for a barbell. However a good bar will last a lifetime, so you’
re only buying this once. Here are several Olympic Barbells which I recommend: Rogue Power Bar. High quality, best of the best. Troy
Texas Power Bar. Handled 1500lb, center knurling. Cap Barbell OB-86PB. Tested at 1500lb, black, but not center knurling. Body-solid
Olympic bar. If you want cheap, I wouldn’t buy it. Think also of getting some spring clips or collars so the plates can’t move around.
This way the plates can’t slide off your bar if you miss a rep or similar, and tip the whole bar over. Spring clips. Put this on your bar so
your plates can’t move around. Lock-jaw collars. Some people find this easier to than spring clips. And then there’s what you do NOT
need for Squats. I’m guilty of Squatting with a bar pad and wrapping a towel around the bar during my early training years. Don’t make
the Squat mistakes I made. NO Bar Pad. It won’t protect your neck when you Squat heavy. The weight will crush it, split it in two and
you’ll have to buy a new bar pad every few weeks. If your neck hurts from Squats, the bar is too high. Lower it so it rests between your
traps and rear shoulders muscles. NO Manta Ray. This plastic tool will dig into your collarbone if it doesn’t fit. And it will put the bar
higher up on your spine, increase the distance to your hip joint, and stress your lower back more. So it trades neck pain for back pain.
Just get rid of it and position the bar right. NO Wrapped Towel. Pain in your spine means you’re not supporting the bar with your upper-
back muscles. Pinch your shoulder-blades BEFORE unracking the weight, then stay tight. This puts your muscles between the bar and
your skin so it can’t dig into it. Pain means you’re not Squatting with proper form. Don’t try to mask it with band-aid solutions like a bar
pad or manta ray. Put the bar correctly on your back. I’ve Squatted 400lb wearing just a t-shirt, many people have Squatted even more
in a t-shirt. You can do it too by putting the bar right first. Shoes Your shoes are the only thing between your feet and the floor when you
Squat. The heavy weight of the bar compresses everything below the bar down to the floor, including your shoes. That means any
shoe with a squishy sole will compress under the weight and behave unpredictably. Remember proper Squat form is moving the bar in
straight vertical line. This requires you to control the bar. It requires you to put something behaving consistently on every rep between
your feet and the floor. Something that won’t squish, slip or mess with your balance. No Running Shoes. Their gel/air filling will
compress under the weight. This makes your bar path unpredictable and will mess up your form. Bad form leads to less weight and
knee pain. So don’t wear shock-absorbers – you’re Squatting heavy, not running on asphalt. No Barefoot. It beats running shoes
because your feet are in contact with the floor and won’t squish under the weight. So you can predict where the bar goes. But barefoot
provides zero traction, especially if you wear socks. Your feet will slip unlike when you wear shoes. The best shoes for Squats have
hard soles that don’t compress under the weight so you control where the bar goes. They provide good traction so your feet don’t
move around. They help you achieve better form so you Squat more without getting hurt. Here’s some shoes I recommend for
Squats… Chuck Taylor All Stars. I Squatted in these for 10 years after reading powerlifters rave about them. Hit all my major PRs in
chuck’s. Good: hard sole, flat, cheap. Bad: narrow for some feet. Get the high top model, with a snug fit so your foot doesn’t move
around. 4.5 stars on Amazon. Reebok Lite Tr. These are like a better version of Chuck Taylor’s, designed specifically for Squats with
powerlifter Mark Bell. Good: wider than chuck’s, better ankle support, looks better. Bad: they’ve got Crossfit written on it (just kiddin’ :))
I ditched my chuck’s for these in 2014. Weightlifting shoes have become popular. I have a pair of Rogue Do-Wins – more stable than
Chuck’s and their heel makes it easier to hit parallel on Front/High Bar Squats. But I prefer a flat sole for low bar Squats. If you get a
pair anyway, 0.5? max for the heel. Higher doesn’t work for low bar. Do NOT put a block or plates under your heels. It’s unstable and
will put stress on your knees by pushing them more forward. If you can’t hit parallel, widen your stance to shoulder-width apart from
the heels, toes out 30°, knees out. If your heels come off the floor: do the same. But no block or plates. Knee Sleeves Knee sleeves can
prevent injuries by increasing the temperature of your knee joints. Your knees will get extremely warm when you Squat in knee
sleeves, and the neoprene will trap that warmth. This lubricates your joints, better than warming up with the bar does, which reduces
the risk of knee injury. Knee sleeves also add support which can help you gain confidence to Squat. Many people who had non-lifting
related knee injuries in the past (acl, meniscus, etc) told me Squatting in knee sleeves helped them overcome psychological
limitations. Turns out their knees could take it, they just didn’t believe it. But knee sleeves won’t prevent injuries from Squatting with
bad form. If you do Quarter Squats, go down in a straight line with your knees travelling all the way forward or let your knees cave in
on the way up – you’ll hurt your knees with or without the knee sleeves. So always Squat with proper form. Rehband Sleeves.
Powerlifting and strongman competitors often Squat in blue knee sleeves. Those are Rehband’s, considered the best. 4.8 stars on
Amazon. Tommy Kono TK Knee Bands. Usually recommended as alternative to the Rehband’s knee sleeves. Slightly cheaper but don’t
seem to last as long. 3.9 stars on Amazon. Knee sleeves aren’t the same as knee wraps. Knee wraps help you Squat more but are not
considered raw lifting. Knee sleeves keep your joints warm, prevent injury and are easier to put on. Belt You can Squat more weight if
you wear a belt. Your abs will contract harder because they have something to push against. This increases abdominal pressure,
gives your lower back support and thus protects against lower back injury. And since your abs contract harder, they don’t stay weak
but get stronger. But a belt won’t prevent injury from Squatting with bad form. If your lower back rounds at the bottom, Squats will hurt
your back regardless of the belt. The injury can actually be greater because of the false sense of security the belt can create, and the
heavier weight you Squatted thanks to the belt. That means practice proper Squat form for a few weeks before adding a belt. 12
weeks of StrongLifts 5×5 minimum. You’ll be Squatting around 100kg/220lb after that. Wear the belt on your last warmup sets and
your 5×5 sets. Not your whole Squat workout, this way your abs also get beltless training. Since a belt works by giving your abs
something to push against, get one that is 4? all around. Not narrow in the front. Single prong is easier to put on than double. Prong
doesn’t require a screwdriver if you put the belt tighter for other lifts. 10mm is best unless you weigh +250lb. Ader Powerlifting belt
Bestbelts – high quality, custom made, pre-broken in. Rogue Ohio Belt Inzer Forever Belt Once you’ve got the belt, wear it on top of
your belly button for Squats. If you wear it lower, the belt won’t work because your abs can’t push against it. Also, this isn’t a corset –
no need to hollow your stomach. But no need to push your abs out either. Just squeeze your abs and get the belt tight.
