    Two forms of squat in same leg day?






    Hey guys and gals

    Has anyone ever done two kinds of squats in the same workout? For example 3 sets of back squats, then 3 sets of lunges (or another similar excersize) followed by 3 sets of hack squats (or another variation)?

    Any thoughts on this?

    I'll do barbell squats with plates under my feet, power rack squats, piles, hack squats...but never smith machine!

    Even with knees that are fucked, I still do squats first followed by leg presses and then front squats. Squats are done with my heaviest weight for 6-8 reps, front squats are done with a weight that is barely manageable for 10-12 reps.

    Why would you need to do that?

    Leg day example:
    Deadlifts
    Front squats
    1-leg-RDL
    lunges
    + isolation

    my advice is that you need to use perfect form. Otherwise, in an already weakened condition, your back and/or knees can give out.

    There might be a more logical way to do it depending on the overall program, but I have done this in the past when doing a split program.

    Or do Std. Squats then Bulgarian's with DB's, because if your back or knees give out, it is not going to injure you .

    Ok help a brother out. What are 1-leg-RDL....since I have terrible balance it sounds like a way for me to fall over.
    I do my best to focus on the task at hand, and give 100% in what I'm doing at the time. Nothing else matters except the task at hand.

    If anything else, to save time.

    4 x 6-10 back squats

    3-4 x 8-10 Front Squats

    Calves

    Because of the amount of musculature involved in squats, why not do 2 heavy lifts? Maybe throw in lunges at the end or some other unilateral variable that could be rotated.

    Talking of "Safe", someone mentioned (above) that they never use the smith machine for squats. Is that just them, or is that something no-one should do?

    I just bought my first smith machine tonight. I haven't done squats on it yet, but I'd heard it was possible.

    Of course you can DO squats on the sm. I just wouldnt make it the very first exercise. Start with regular squats or leg presses and then add front squats to the mix. Lately, I like to (pre exhaust my quads with leg exts), move onto leg presses, then after five sets, move into regular squats and finish off with front squats on a smith machine supersetted with step ups. I get an amazing burn and have rendered my legs useless the following day.
    I have learned that you need to have those knees wrapped tight, as that makes all the difference in the world.

    Soreness and the burn don't mean jack shit and the smith machine is abysmal. Chances of injurying yourself are like ten times as big on a (smith) machine.

    thats because people like you trip over their big fucking mouths when using it. Before opening read what I said again; nowhere does it say that a burn emphasizes growth genius.

    The smith machine nonsense needs to stop. Please explain to me why moving weights in one fixed line is not bad. Normal machines are bad with their fixed ranges of motion, but the smith machine is even worse with its 1 line of motion.

    Why is moving something in a fixed line "Bad"? I have no problem saying that free weights are the first option, but machines offer a few things that free weights cannot, such as full range tension, and for those of us who practice HIT type training, the ability to push beyond without the need of a spotter.
