The Sissy Squat is not a 'sissy' workout at all. In fact, this exercise is believed to be named after Sisyphus, a king in Greek mythology! The banished king was ordered by Zeus to roll a huge boulder up a steep hill as punishment, with the boulder returning to its starting point each day. Who wouldn't love quads belonging to a king such as this!
Sissy Squats are considered to be a safer alternative than regular squats and leg extensions as there is less placed on other muscles including the knee joint. This is why the machine is a popular choice for gym-goers unable to perform normal squats due to certain injuries.
