    Hello Joe!

    I have a Matrix hack squat at my gym, however as per my previous topic post about my knee pain, I sadly can not use it for the time being.

    I already have a front foot elevated reverse banded split squat for getting a fully lengthened quad, and I’ve heard you say you only need 1 knee dominant squat pattern in your workout. So I was wondering what other single leg movements would be a good substitute for accomplishing the same goals as a hack squat would.

    Thanks Joe. The content you make continues to better my training every week 🙂

    Thanks a lot Joe. I’m glad your concepts have been sticking with me, as I chose the single-leg banded leg press as my alternative before I received your answer. Thanks for the answer, and the endless concepts.
