The Recovery Series LEX (Lower EX-tremity) allows for faster lower extremity recovery, from post-surgery to explosive training, in a safe and progressive manner. Users work with a percentage of their own bodyweight to perform a squat or a jump, leveraging both linear bodyweight resistance and variable band resistance.

The LEX supports the spine during traditional squat exercises to comfortably control the descending and ascending phases of a squat or jump, while providing an opportunity for advanced variations including, single-leg squats and staggered stance squats.
