What is slant resist?

Slant resist is a metal slant platform with slots for resistance bands. Slant resist is a type of gym equipment that elevates the heel for squats. It consists of a sloped platform that the user stands on to raise the heel, allowing for an ideal knees-over-toes movement to be performed. Slant Boards and blocks have become popular and widely used by Ben Patrick (the Knees Over Toes Guy) in his ATG program. But squats aren’t the only benefit of a slant board – it can be used for a variety of different exercises in your gym routine. From lunges to your post-workout stretches, the variety of uses are endless.  Not only does it enhance workouts, it also provide useful health benefits to the user. This includes:
  • Helping muscles rehab
  • Improving posture
  • Relieving stress on muscles
  • Preventing inflammation on muscles
  • Balance
  • Stability
And much more!

What do slant resist do for squats?

If you’re not already boosting your squat performance with a sloped platform, then you’re not utilising a deeper range of movements for your squat. This means that you’re missing out on easily reaching the bottom of your squat while supporting your knees, hips and ankles.  Using a slanted board or platform is beneficial for improving your ankle range of motion (ROM). In other words, due to the angle of this product, your VMO muscles will be isolated and you’ll be able to develop bigger and stronger leg muscles while your ankles and knees are supported and strengthened. 

Why do squats with heels elevated?

When you squat with your ankles sloped, you reduce dorsiflexion on the foot. This means that the foot is not raised upwards towards the shin, which reduces the need for the ankle to bend. This improves strength, flexibility and reduces the risk of injury during your workouts. Not only does this help to build strength faster in athletes, but it reduces the amount of weight placed on your hips, knees and ankles.
