Q Hi, I’m wondering if the Sissy squat will be able to be used by my petite five foot clients as well as the taller guys? The rear pad looks quite large ....
is there any way of getting a measurement from the top of the pad to the floor plate please? +
A Hi Marcus
Thanks for your message.
From the top of the large pad to the footplate measures 380mm. I hope this helps however if you need any further information please let me know.
