- Unleash your inner warrior with the Plate-Loaded Leg Press and Hack Squat Machine. Explicitly designed to develop glutes, quads, calves, hamstrings, and core abdominal muscles, all in one freestanding machine. This lower-body strength training machine, constructed from durable steel, features large diamond-plated footplates, comfortable support padding for the lower back and shoulder areas, undercarriage dual weight sleeves that fit Olympic-style plates, and a weight carriage traveling on commercial linear bearings with steel alloy guide rods. The wide diamond-plated footplate, mounted at the machine’s base, allows various foot positions and angles to engage different muscle groups while hack squatting. The thick shoulder and back pads provide comfortable padding that will reduce strain and stress on your muscles as you bodybuild. The side rail handles dual as control handles and are set with three lockout positions to provide safety control and the option of different start/stop positions throughout either Leg Press or Hack Squat movements. To perform either exercise, fold in the handrails and when you are done with your set, fold them out to lock the carriage bar in place. Angled at 45-degrees, you can switch workouts in seconds by quickly flipping the back pad and dropping the leg press footplate for Hack Squats and vice-versa to return to a Leg Press position. This dedicated 2-in-1 machine is designed to accommodate athletes of all sizes and is the ultimate lower body strength training machine that combines leg press, hack squat, forward thrust, and calf raises.
