The belt squat machine is one of the best ways to perform loaded squats without placing loads on your spine. This is important for several reasons:
It allows for faster recovery due to unloading of the spine.
It allows you to squat with upper body injuries that inhibit you from holding a bar on your back.
The downward pull of the belt provides a traction like effect to the spine (great for lower back problems).
You can train to failure with little fear of injury.
