My promise: All of the products I recommend are of the highest quality and are ones that I personally use. I will never back a product that I don’t believe in.
The Squat Bible
Do you need help perfecting squat technique? Do you want to move better so you can hit that new PR? My first book, ‘The Squat Bible’ walks you through how to screen and uncover what specific problems are holding you back (such as limited ankle mobility, knee stability, etc) and teaches you how to rebuild your squat today!
Ursus Shoe By Bearfoot Athletics.
I use this shoe when deadlifting, pressing, and just about every lift besides cleans & snatches. This shoe fits like a glove and enhances foot stability by allowing your foot to move like it should! To learn why a barefoot shoe like the Ursus is so great and will help you lift more weight with great technique, check out this podcast: https://anchor.fm/squat-university/episodes/Why-Your-Shoes-Suck-Interview-with-Dr–Ray-McClanahan-ectm8g/a-a1v8q1j

Comfortable and fashionable shoes with an extra wide toe-box and flexible sole for a natural fit.

Rogue Monster Bands
To perform the “Spanish Squat” for patellar or quad tendonitis or banded joint mobilizations for the hip/ankle, you need a good quality band that’s strong and won’t break down. The Monster Bands from Rogue are my go-to resistance bands!
Not your everyday foam roller! This roller is designed to really get into stiff tissues and improve mobility. I use it everyday!
A heel lift helps improve technique during the olympic lifts by allowing you to squat deeper with a more upright chest. The Versalift heel lift easily fits within your everyday tennis shoe, giving you the versatility to perform a snatch, box jumps, and run around the block without having to change into your olympic lifting shoes!

Transformer Bar By Kabuki Strength
Plain and simple, I love this bar. The Transformer Bar is practically multiple-bars-in-one. The adjustable set-up allows you to “transform” the bar so that it acts like a front squat or back squat, all with the standard hold of a normal safety squat bar (SSB). It allows the lifter to control the height of the camber (4 different settings) as well as the angle (variable by 30 degrees all the way around). There are a total of 48 different positional variations you can select. The bar is a must-have for the serious strength athlete and strength facility!
