    Agreed. It's literally An inverted deadlift. THe bar drags on your legs the whole way up and it feels like shit

    If you have limited space, it's much more economical to have a sumo rack + utility bench than have a bench with shitty uprights for squatting.

    NE Way, you're likely better off with some of the alternatives in this thread.

    I was thinking that, and Amazon has a nice utility bench with a 1000 lbs rating. Mine is only 700. And the uprights are so low, I have to pin squat everything for the first rep. Hence why I'm looking for alternatives lol

    You have to look at it as an investment. It's similar when people purchase bars. If you just do it right the first time, you'll end up saving money.

    Don't worry, I'm not impressed.

    And based on your posts in this thread, it still seems unlikely.

    It's cool, not worried about impressing some jag on the internet.

    I prefer romanian deadlifts over hack squats

    SAw a video of a dude doing these with 880lbs....I might revisit the lift. He also Jefferson squatted 715lbs so maybe he's just a freak.

    Hit 430 today on these for a single. Slow and steady. I'm no Eric Bugenhagen but am happy with the progress.

    And 505 for a single. Nearly shit my pants and passed out.

    Still a ways off of L5Dustiny and his 585 barbell hack squat.
