We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Many people avoid squats for one simple reason: the heavy weight can put a lot of strain on your neck and shoulders. Luckily, a good pad can help solve this problem, preventing injury and distributing the force of the bar more evenly. The end result is less pain and more high-quality reps. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best squat pad on Amazon.

Originally from a tiny town in Virginia, Gabrielle moved to Los Angeles for a marketing internship at a well-known Hollywood public relations firm and was shocked to find that she loves the West Coast. She spent two years as a writer and editor for a large DIY/tutorial startup, where she wrote extensively about technology, security, lifestyle, and home improvement. A self-professed skincare nerd, she’s well-versed in numerous ingredients and methods, including both Western and Asian products. She is an avid home cook who has whiled away thousands of hours cooking and obsessively researching all things related to food and food science. Her time in the kitchen has also had the curious side effect of making her an expert at fending off attempted food thievery by her lazy boxer dog.
