The hack squats worked out better than I thought. While I was doing them, I thought to myself: "This will probably be the same as doing deadlifts", but as I progressed toward 164 pounds, I found myself having to borrow more and more strength from my legs rather than my back.
It was a good suggestion, thanks for your help.
