Hack Squat Cues

▶️ In terms of hypertrophy can be an excellent exercise that can benefit ALMOST any individual by lending us the ability to train a fully lengthened quad position with reduced/unnecessary force on the knee joint

✅ Make sure to lock your back and hips into the pad. Place feet as low as possible on the platform. You want to think of your hamstring covering your calf = maximal knee flexion. Constantly contracting the front of leg and coming up just short of “knees locked out”

❌ Be careful to not allow your feet to move at all during this movement, the angle of the platform is aimed to help our range of motion in our ankle (just like the wedge of elevated heel squat) Find a comfortable foot placement that you can set up and stay in
