    Screw the machine, barbell squats all the way! And for my personal choice "Box Squats" produce the best results.

    I always do the standard barbell squats, but im not seeing much improvement lately, thinking of giving something else a try. What are box squats?

    I actually prefer leg presses for my leg workouts but do incorporate squats and hacks from time to time

    I love hack squats on the machine. You can really isolate the legs without having to worry about your lower back being a weak link. If competing in athletics, I would recommend barbell hack squats. It requires more neuromuscular coordination and can be more sport-specific (starting at the blocks during a sprint, etc).
