    Question Hack Squat problems

    I have a picture to show what my shoulders usually end up looking like after I do a set of hack-squats. I use the machine that slides on two rails and naturally has two supporting pads for your shoulders.

    Click Here to check it out.

    So my question is: Is this something to worry about? Does this happen to other people?

    Thanks.

    Looks like your padding isn't up to par. Try putting a hand towel or two in between you and the pad.

    I sometimes have to wiggle around a little until I get in a comfortable position.

    I get it if I dont use a towel. I put it on my shoulders around my neck and then hop under the pads.

    Happens to me all the time and usually lasts a day or two. As far as I can tell no ill effects.
