How to use the Westside Barbell Athletic Training Platform

December 10, 2017

The Westside ATP (formerly known as the Belt Squat) is an extremely versatile training tool for both powerlifters and athletes.  The ATP works by suspending weight below the hips and it's unique cable system allows for a wide range of movements.  The arrangement of the belt and pulleys actually provides traction to the low back and maintains alignment in the pelvis - making squat movements a reality for lifters who avoid traditional barbell squats due to lower back or disc injuries.  In addition to squat and deadlift variations there are an almost unlimited number of sport specific movements that can be performed on the ATP.  In this video, WSB coach Tom Barry teaches Coach Myers some wrestling/grappling specific uses for the ATP:
