Gym opened up and a new piece of equipment was here.Previously did these with a barbell and pad to protect the goodies.
Anybody here used these extensively?

My gym got one of these machines a few months before the shit storm. Surprised how many dudes lined up to use that bitch
Not judging but just looks funny

Not saying that theres no value to that machine but i think that most guys that do heavy legs with full ROM, deadlift and stiff leg deads get all the glute work they need. I for one dont need bigger glutes
The wife uses a bar and bench and she likes it but feels a bit uncomfortable around people doing it

It can hurt Your pelvic area with no protection.

Heavy deads no more.
No more flexion plus compression for me.

Does hit the hams as well.
But I think this machine could be improved if the foot platform was on a slide.

Switching to single leg for a few heavies and negatives is a breeze.Good hamstring pump.Doing them after squats.

Tried singles with a slight twist of the hips.Singles with the other leg
fully extended work well.
