    Hey!

    What are your thoughts on a reverse hack squat? So basically facing the pad and having the movement more hip dominant alike a machine squat.

    Especially curious as obviously you could band it up as well.

    Thanks!

    I prefer a hip dominant squat, even a hip Roman at leg press personally.

    I think it had greater and cleaner range of motion.

    Never understood the whole exercise. Looks awkward as hell and besides I am personally not a huge fan of all these weird and funky exercise “hacks”, no pun intended. Other way of me saying, I am not that advanced yet lol ????

    If it’s on a true hack squat, not worth it at all IMO. The inconvenience of set up, head/neck position aren’t worth the potential benefits. If it’s more of a v-squat or “power squat” machine, where it’s actually designed to be used facing both ways, then I think it can be a great option
