Sled Hack Squat

Sled Hack Squat

Classification

Utility: Basic or Auxiliary
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Push

Instructions

Preparation

Lie supine on back pad with shoulders under shoulder pad. Place feet on platform slightly higher than base of sled. Extend hips and knees. Release dock levers.

Execution

To lower sled, bend hips and knees until knees are just short of complete flexion. Raise sled by extending knees and hips. Repeat.

Comments

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 emphasizes Gluteus Maximus. Placing feet slightly lower on platform emphasizes Quadriceps.
