    Ok so home gym trainee. Love the app just have to spend some time figuring out how to best mimic movements sometimes.
    So no leg press no hack squat. Have been doing barbell hack squats which of course limits loading and noticed as closing in on failure and form breaks down crashing bar into back of legs and abruptly stopping the movement.
    So I thought trap bar would prevent that and allow to squeeze out more reps while increasing the load, which In fact it did allow.
    Now as range of motion is limited a bit would it be better to mimic the deep end of the hack and get calf and thigh touching by doing deficit lifts, while maintaining a more upright posture. Or just continue to do standard with heels elevated still? Or is there a better mimic to the hack squat?
