Joined a new gym, and it doesn't have a hack squat machine, which I typically used on my 2nd (non squat) leg workouts weekly.
It does have two Hammer Strength V-Squat machines; one plate loaded and the other has a stack (MTS).
What are the similarities/differences between these two exercises (hack squat vs V-squat)?
Haven't tried it yet but I thought I might tomorrow. Looks like the V-squat might allow some back involvement in the lift whereas the traditional hack slide machine does not.
Anyone have experience or knowledge of both?
Thanks in advance.
PS: I normally do hack slides with a narrow stance and feet out front.
