Today, we're explaining a game-changing leg day exercise: the Hack Squat using just a barbell, landmine, and weight plates. Let's dive into the details and get ready to take your squats to the next level.

Setting Up Your Home Hack Squat

Here's what you'll need:

Profile® Landmine Attachment: Ideal for a secure and versatile landmine setup.

Wall-Mounted Landmine: Perfect for those with limited space but still seeking an effective hack squat solution.

Barbell: The essential tool for any squat variation.

Plates: Not just for adding weight – they double as a comfortable backrest.

Let's break down the setup:

1. Barbell and Landmine Fusion: Insert your barbell into the Profile® or wall-mounted landmine. This creates a stable and guided platform for your hack squats.

2. Weight Plate Addition: Add your desired weight to the barbell. Here's the genius part—it also doubles as a backrest! Talk about efficiency.

3. Getting into Position: Place the sleeve of the barbell on your shoulder. Take a couple of half steps back, leaning back onto the weight plate. This unique setup enhances your stability and allows you to achieve maximum depth in your squats.

Perfecting the Hack Squat Movement

Now that you're set up, let's get into the nitty-gritty of the exercise:

1. Guided Movement: The landmine attachment ensures your squatting movement is guided, promoting proper form and reducing the risk of improper technique.

2. Depth and Stability: Leaning back into the weight plate not only adds a new dimension to your squatting experience but also facilitates reaching below parallel, maximizing your squat depth.
