Hack squat with an EZ bar; tug in my lower lats.

#1 Postby Cellar Yeti » Tue Aug 27, 2013 2:30 pm

So when I do hack squats I notice a tug in my lower lats. Any idea if this is normal or if I should have my form checked?

I make sure to keep my back tight and drive with my knees through my hips.

Thanks dudes/dudettes.

Are you talking about the Hack squat as in the "reverse deadlift" style with the bar behind you?

If so, I can see how it might have a bit of a lat tug for some people, especially those with shorter arms and longer legs or torsos, as your leverages might give a different feel to the lift and cause a different sensation in the lats from the different positioning/mechanics of the lift.

Tought to say, though!
