Title: Fitness system and method for alignment of lower extremities

Abstract: A lower extremity alignment device for maintaining proper form while engaging in squat or other weight lifting exercises is disclosed. More specifically, a user's knee joints will resist rotating inward or outward during repetitions due to support provided by the device while core muscled benefits are still realized. In a first preferred embodiment, the device is optimally shaped with a tapered end to provide comfort to the user's groin area. Additionally, the device comprises a softer inner core and a more rigid outer core also aiding in comfort to a user. The invention further provides grip material to lateral side portions so the device will not slip when in use, as well as other novel features as described herein.
