The Mech Ox is the most advanced piece of strength training equipment on the market. It is the ONLY machine that allows the lifter to push(the squat) and pull (the dead) at the same time. This causes greater CNS and muscle fiber recruitment, which in turn will make your athletes faster and stronger, in less time, than with conventional weight tranining methods. And with this patented design, there is less chance for injury.

Here is Lee Howard's (PT, PhD, ATC, CSCS) explanation of why we have seen athletes get stronger in just ONE training session:
"1) Synchronizes extensor mechanism at the hips. The deadlift pulls you forward and the squat pushes you forward creating what would appear to be a neurological quandary. I have to believe that this supercharges you for the shift back to the deadlift. This would seem to hold true as long as you could accelerate through this "deadsquat" exercise.
2) More motor recruitment equals greater strength/power gains. Since the pattern of motion for both exercises are similar (same) it still follows specificity principles of training. I think this is one of the reasons for carryover.
3) The squat bar raises your center of mass (balance point where all forces are said to be acting) increasing the difficulty of the exercise. When you return to the deadlift the overall center of mass is lower resulting in greater efficiency with the pull."
