    Hi Joe

    Are there any disadvantages to permanently switching to a “single leg” leg press instead of using two legs?

    I was worried about the decreased load. As an example, If I could leg press 400 pounds with two legs l wouldn’t be able to leg press 200 pounds with one leg so I was wondering if the benefits would be decreased.

    My rationale for the single leg press:
    Less load on knees
    Correcting imbalances

    Would you agree?
