Im not sure what hack squats are and today is my squats. If hack sqauts are done with a machine i cant do them Im using the wieghts i own. Does anyone have a substitute for them im using the wbb1 routine.
hmmm never seen that in my life...what would the point of doing them be. i mean you couldnt lift as heavy as you could if you did regular squats and deadlifts.Originally Posted by cm07
I do hack squats and I rep more weight with hacks than I max with squats. It's a lot closer to my deadlift. Also, I do them after squats.
Barbell hack squats are absolutely wonderful. They destroy my quads and send my heartrate and breathing through the roof--just try them with heavy weight. I usually can't walk for a couple minutes after I finish.

Bench: 205x1 / 225x1
Squat: 275x2 / 315x1
Deadlift: 365x1 / 365x1
They're good as long as you're doing some kind of deadlift or olympic lifts to prevent imbalances.
i might have to try those badboys....never seen anyone do it.Originally Posted by cm07
i do them every now and then, and they are awesome for nailing your quads.

Yep I have tried them before... They do hit the back of my legs if I am not absolutely concentrating on form... They do hit the quads big time...
