    Ok now that I have your attention. Saw a video on TikTok. In it a trainer made an assertion that a man doing a 200 lb back squat had less load per quad than the same 200 lb man doing a body weight sissy squat. His exact numbers were 900 per quad back squat and 1200 per quad sissy squat.
    So is this possible. I have seen body builders incorporate sissy squats. But the video made it seem from a strictly Hypertrophy of just the quads that the sissy squat (although it was being demonstrated with a heel elevated cable sissy squat) was the more demanding with less load.
    And my head isn’t wrapped around the science enough to figure the actuals out.
    But was curious.

    Thanks gentlemen. I will do my homework and try to understand
