    Barbell hack squats vs. machine hack squats


    I feel that Doing BB hack is better for u because you use these Stabilizers muscles and the Machine hack is just for Iso.. So why even do the machine if you are not incorporating more muscles? [plus the machine is so much easer to left heavy! let me know what you folks think!

    Machines tend to be easier for people to initially use. It`s harder to screw it up or hurt yourself.
