I was wondering I could bounce some ideas off, or get some ideas on technique.
I’m about less than a year of a sacro-iliac problem which is mostly healed.
- I’m wavering on how low to go on the leg press (45 degree incline). I can’t seem to get my knees close towards my chest without feeling my tailbone tuck unless I cut the ROM. I’ve been stretching and doing mobility exercises and working on the ‘third world squat’ which has helped my squatting a lot and I’ve felt some transfer to the leg press.
Another problem is that when I press the load forefully up, my ass kinda of jumps forward from the back pad. The only way to prevent this is if I put on some more plates, but can’t afford to get my tailbone to tuck under with the extra weight. I can’ tell if I am going too deep or if I am wussing out.
- On the single leg curl where you bend forward, I notice several people curling until their knee is 90 degrees. At rare times when I go above this I get some slight uncomfortable clicking on the lateral side of my knee.
I am not sure if this is some slight overuse of the knee flexors because I am trying to bring my legs up or if I’m doing this machine w/ a poor ROM.
Any help/feedback or experience would help a lot.
