    I've heard good things, but, to be honest, I'm skeptical. I'm sure it's a fine machine, but I don't know if it's a necessity at all.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    My girlfriend's high school has those machines and their athletics program makes them out to be some kind of holy grail of explosive training. One of the "rites of passage" for the boys' teams is throwing up after a SuperCat workout.

    It's seems like a really expensive way to replicate a weight vest.

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John
