    I was wondering about today’s program. Is it ok to do the squats in a smith machine. And If I don’t have a hack machine in my gym. Is it ok to do one part of wider and one part of narrow leg presses instead? Sorry about my English ☺️

    Sure, if you feel more comfortable on the smith machine go right ahead. There is an alternative to the hack….you can do a goblet squat. Holding a Dumbell chest height (you are holding one end of the DB and the other end is facing the ground) in front of you…here’s the key: slow the tempo down 5 count down 3 count back up. It will make it difficult without going super heavy on the DB.HOpe that helps.
