    Free motion squat machine?

    My back has been preventing me from doing a lot of exercises for a few moths now. Squats, DLing, bent over BB rows, etc. I had all but given up. My leg training consists of leg press, extentions, leg curls, and calf raises.

    We my gym just got a bunch of new equipment, one items being a squat mach by Free Motion. used it today for the first time and I could really feel it in my quads.

    Anyone have any experience with this machine? Thoughts? Will this be adequate until my back recovers, if it does.

    Downside is it only goes to 400 lbs and it does not feel like squatting 400 lbs. I think between this and the other exercises mentioned it will have to suffice for now. Hope to do a BB squat again someday.
