    Sissy Squat machine?

    Looking for some feedback please.
    I just came across something called Sissy Squat machine & wanted to understand if I can do Barbell Squats (i have a Safety squat bar) using this machine or this machine can only be used as plain sit-ups without any barbell.
    I mean can we take correct form & do proper Barbell squatting with this? any pros and cons using this..

    A sissy squat is a way of isolating the movement at the knee (without hip extension forming part of the movement). It's a bit like a leg extension machine.

    So no, it isn't like a conventional squat. If you already have a barbell all you need for that is a power cage.

    As for sissy squat, you don't need a machine for it IMO, I just use a safety rail on the cage set at about chest height to hold on to to keep my balance - squat on the balls of your feet while leaning back. You can use your hands to resist yourself when coming up to add difficulty.
