Hack squats are way better than barbell back squats. Why didn't you nerds tell me about these sooner?

      I dream of seated hamstring curl and side delt machine. Why are gym owners such morons.

    My current gym doesn't have a hack squat. I've been doing lengthened partial smith machine squats instead and I might even prefer them to hacksquats.

      load up 1pl8 for deadlift. Stand in front of the bar. Deadlift it. You can now hack squat with a barbell

        Even if that may be the original meaning, that's a very different exercise.

          still trains your quads better than any other lift.

            The barbell would hit the floor before I hit my lowest position. The lowest position is the best for muscle growth. I.e it's not the best quad exercise.

                I tried to imply that I've never done them, but in theory they don't seem effective.

                So go and try them with 1pl8 like I said. You will feel them in your quads by the second or third rep. Practice and real world experience always beats theory

                Yes they do. You just only ever see the biggest, most muscular (and likely roided) people online because of social media bias.

                The guy who invented the bench press did them. The name 'Hack squat' is short for Hackenschmidt, the name of the guy who invented it. But I guess you can be moronic

    barbell squats work your full body
    the barbell squat uses 500 muscles at once
    this releases growth hormone and makes ALL your muscles grow. if you did nothing but barbell squats, you would get bigger arms and chest from the growth hormone and testosterone spike

    No they aren't, unless you are a body builder trying to isolate quads. For general strengh and athletic performance barbell squats are better in every single way. This isn't even talking about how these will frick your knees up, while atg barbell squats are one of the best exercises to strengthen your knees
