Advanced Hack Squat


This was TECA's first special creation. It was designed and tested to work the quadriceps from the standing position. In other words, it is based on the movements of the traditional squat with barbell and the not-to-be-ignored possibility of keeping the spinal column partially out of action thanks to the exclusive "variable-attitude pantograph". The latter enables the backrest to follow the trunk during the entire movement. The adoption of this mechanism in place of the sled bars common in most conventional hack squat machines makes it possible to limit the stress on the coxo-femoral joint, knee and tarsotibial as well as on the spinal column thereby reducing the risk of overloading joints and causing conditions that make this exercise painful to execute. By suitably altering the position and distance between the feet, this exercise also provides a superb workout for the adductors, gluteals and biceps femoris as well as the quadriceps.
