I’ve just completed my fist week of Waterbury’s Big Boy Basics. I love this program and I want to stick to as close as possible. Today I did hack squats for the first time and I’m concerned if my legs actually got a work out. I was lifting 185 8X3 as the prgram reccomends.
I’m sure my legs could have handled more weight, but my grip wouldn’t be able to handle it. Meanwhile this skinny, old dude is on a hack squat machine hammering out 10 reps with the same weight.
So I’m wondering, should I switch to the machine to get a better leg workout or should a stick to the free weights and just wait till my grip improves?
