    "Leverage Squat" similar to a Pendulum Squat?

    Squats have always been one of my best exercises but at my age, using the barbell just causes too much pain. Before I cash in my man-card I've been trying other machines in the gym (plate loaded and cable machines) and found one that I really like that calls itself a "Leverage squat" made by Body-Solid.

    Well I can't post pics or links yet, it a Body Solid SLS500


    What I loved was how low I could squat without stressing my knees, which was always a concern for me even when I was a teenager back in the 90s.


    For those who have used these and pendulum machines, is the leverage machine similar? My gym doesn't have a Pendulum.


    Yesterday I did 4 sets of 5 at 270 just to get the feel of it, didn't want to wreck my day at work with DOMS from ego-lifting on a machine I haven't used yet.

    He concept is similar enough.

    It does look like it puts more emphasis on the hips than the quads, similar to a hack squat, but should be a fine replacement for a barbell squat either way.
