Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread
^Was just using hacksquats as an example, never done them tbh so can't comment on awkwardness effect, although they don't really seem that bad at all. I'm more of a classical training type though, I barely ever use machines (thinking about smith machines in hacksquat case) unless its for leg extensions and lat pulldowns, although I wouldn't say no to them per se, just never used them in my routines done so far yet.
To add to your post, he should also post his stats, diet and bodytype. I remember when I was still a beginner and followed a mesomorph diet plan (not knowing between the difference of bodytypes at that type), still beeing 175 lbs and thinking 2500 kcals was enough for maintenance, lost 22 lbs (10 kilos) in the process during so-called maintenance in all of three months and looked borderline anorexic as a result.
