hack squats

Just read a musclemag from a few years back and Lee Priest is saying that he does hack squats "with feet right at the bottom of the plate, almost on tip-toes", he says this puts more emphasis on the lower quads.

Surely this would mean that the knees would be considerably way out over the toes and put a lot of strain on the joints????? At present i do hack squats with my feet almost at the top of the plate as my toes don't come over my knees, but i was wondering if it is safe to do the exercise "priest style"???

    I would not suggest it. Stick with regular squats as you will get much more from them.

    I'm with JH on this one, hack squats always make my knees feel like they are going to explode. I hate 'em
