I can imagine it would be hell on the back. Say hello to compression of the spine.[/quote]
That’s what I’m trying to avoid, want something to use lightly between back squats.
[quote] I think if you’re going to do a vertical leg press you might as well go old school.
- Put your boots on.
- Lie on your back with legs in the air.
- Get two strong friends.
- Strong friends position a loaded bar on your boots in the heel notch.
- Try not to kill yourself.
Of course you’ll press less wieght, but with the set-up my guess is that the actual forced produced may be very similar to your vertical leg press sled which gives the presser a great mechanical advantage.
There’s a frugal substitute that would work just fine! ha!
I don’t think there are ball bearings in this machine. I suppose a little Rem Oil on the guides would keep it moving.
Thanks All for the input.
