Sled Hack Squat

Instructions

Preparation

Lie supine on platform with shoulders against pad. Place feet high up on platform. Extend hips and knees. Release dock levers.

Execution

Lower sled by flexing hips and knees until hips are completely flexed. Raise sled by extending knees and hips. Repeat.

Comments

If available, re-engage support lever in extended position before dismounting. If insufficient hip flexibility forces pelvis to pull away from back pad at lower portions of movement, only lower sled just short of spinal articulation. Keep knees pointed same directions as feet. Do not allow heels to raise off of platform, pushing with both heel and forefoot. Placing feet slightly high on platform emphasize Gluteus Maximus. Placing feet slightly lower on platform emphasize Quadriceps.
