One Leg Leg Press Safe?

It stops spine from rounding, but does it place too much pressure on SI joint?

Yes it’s safe

Yes its safe…

Yes it’s safe.

Hope so! I do it all the time.

It’s also better for your lower back. Stuart McGill, an expert on the spine, states if you use the leg press, do one leg at a time

I’ve been doing this exercise for quite a while and I love it. I have found that it actually has helped even out my leg strength. If you are a little reserved on it, try incorporating Bands with the exercise. I believe John Meadows has an article about them.
