    I thought I was a man....

    till i got done squatting today and realised I am not fit for the title...

    I've never had an exercise kick my ass like that... I seriously thought i was going to puke after 3 sets of 15... (i won't tell you the weight, it was low)
    Are you kidding me????

    Squats have made many women widows for that very reason.

    Don't sweat it man! At least your doing it. I can't do squats except on the Smith Machine and even with that I don't look forward to leg day. I have larger legs, but I can't squat diddly!
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    also, i noticed there is a hack squat machine at the gym too... how does that vary from the traditional squat?

    Because I can't go that low. My ankles aren't flexible or something or my legs are too long but something doesn't work right when I try squats. So I do them on the Smith and can put my feet further forward so I can get more of a deep squat.

    Squats kick my ass too man.

    I don't know if it is because I am taller or what but I just can't increase my numbers on that damn exercise and one of the few exercises where I have to take a fairly long rest (maybe 2-3 mins) between sets.

    Just because your taller doesn't mean you cant do it, so maybe something is up with your ankles, I have no idea. I'm 6'2" and can do squats but yes they are a bitch.

    Honestly I use the hack squat machine lately, I can go just as low as a full squat, but it doesn't require me to use my back or anything else, its nearly all leg so you can stack the plates up pretty damn well. I may go back to squats at some point, but I can blast the legs harder with the hack squat machine.

    Unfortunately the smith is not good for your knees, but pretty much any machine is true in that regard, leg extentions and the hack squat machine as well to some degree.

    i struggle with the squats

    i just do them with no weight, but excellent form and go high reps, do like 2 sets of 15-20, then i do them with a exercise ball against a wall so my back is supported by the ball, and i grab some dumbells and i can go down quite low by doing this, i only do 3 sets of these and after that my legs are screwed!

    i will try and do a proper squat with a bar on my shoulders next week, i'm just worried i will fall flat on my ass! as soon as my thighs get paralell to the floor i start to really wobble

    I go all the way down with no balance problems... but they sure are an ass kicker. Normally I like old fashioned stuff but I get enough back work elsewhere, so I'm sticking to hacks for now.
