Manta Ray helps reduce neck pain during squats

This may only be of interest to a small subset of you gadgetites out there, but I found it interesting nonetheless.  The Manta Ray from Advanced Fitness, Inc. is a patented device that can help alleviate neck pain when performing a squat exercise.  Made of molded polyurethane, it features a notch that grips the squat bar while the contoured shape distributes the weight of the bar across a greater surface area of the neck, upper back and shoulders to relieve some of the concentrated stress in that area.  Available in one size for $39.95.  Also available in a front squat version called the Sting Ray for the same price.

  1. Hey, I actually used one of these; they’re great. I even bought it at a store. Now-a-days I’m doing P90X though, so not using the barbell things.
