Get Shredded!
What's the word? I try to keep my back arched, chest up, and when doing these and seldom go super heavy like I used to do back in the day. I'm thinking of giving them a try here in a few. I'm carb depleting in preparation for Christmas!

I've pulled an erector at least twice, if not three times in the leg press. Granted I do have some scoliosis and a weak left knee which can lead to torso twisting on heel drive movements.

What do you guys think or what do the anatomy heads think. ??

Lordosis is an exaggerated arch. Do you mean a rounded back? If it is indeed lordosis, then you need to work on fixing that first instead of worrying about how it's affecting your leg press. Stretch the front of your hips and strengthen your hammies. Lordosis is a simple muscular imbalance that will take exercises, time, and patience to fix.
