I am getting ready for another round of CW’s TBT and this time around I would like to incorporate hack squats. The problem is that I cannot seem to get the movement correct. It feels like the bar is rolling up my hams and my ass. I was thinking about using the smith machine for this lift at least until I feel like I can perform the lift correctly. Does this sound like a reasonable approach or should I just load the bar with less weight and practice doing them?
I would also like to know if the hack squat leads to better development of the quads than back squats and front squats? I currently do back squats twice a week and front squats once a week.
