One Leg Leg Press Safe?


#1

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


#2

Yes it's safe


#3

Yes its safe....


#4

Yes it's safe.


#5

Hope so! I do it all the time.


#6

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.
