sore back from leg press??
hey guys, i was curious of two things.. one: does anyone else ever have a sore lower back after doing leg presses? its a decline leg press, and i usually do it as extra leg work after doing some heavy squats. The squats don't hurt my lower back at all, it might make it a little sore, but thats different. I can feel my lower back being pushed on, and it hurts a bit, when I'm doing the leg presses, especially at higher weights, and today my lower back is still sore, but not the good kind of sore. The second thing I was wondering is that since the leg presses do irritate my back, can anyone recommend another exercise to do in place of them? I always start out with squats and go hard, sometimes I don't even throw in the extra leg work afterwards, but I think it might have been helping my squat go up a bit, so I'd like to continue with something at least. Thanks.
