Squat or Leg Press ???
Studies have shown that incorporating squat in your training shows a better increase in jump performance in Jump Squat and Countermovement Jump.
This means that for athletes, the squat should be preferred because of the better transfer effects.
However, we highly recommend that if you have any back problem or pain or you are new to weightlifting, you should perform Leg Press for preventing injuries.
Additionally, we think that you should have training seasons where you perform both of them, or alternate them. This way you can take a rest on you lower back 😄💪🏻🏋🏻
