I have a question regarding the hack squat prescribed on the lower day in PPL.
Would swapping the regular hack squat to a landmine hack squat suffice? I already have added bulgarian split squats to the end of the workout instead of the walking lunges so I just felt it would be “redundant” to do two variations of lunges if I used a lunge to replace the hack squat instead of the landmine hack squat.
I operate out of my home gym and have an attachment that allows me to rest the landmine on both my shoulders (facing outward).
I actually like the way the landmine hack squat feels – but, it obviously is harder to go to true failure with a lot of weight due to not have a back pad/stability like on a traditional hack. Typically, I stick to the rep range but just slow down the tempo since I don’t necessarily load it as high like I would a regular hack. Would love input if this is ok or if I should up volume to higher rep ranges for this exercise and do more of a burn out?
