Would a squat be a good alternative exercise to a leg press??

I cannot do leg presses due to balance issues from spinal stinosis, even non-weighted leg presses are a no-go. Can I substitute squats in their place??

Thanks!

    Yes, squats and even lunges would be good substitute moves for leg presses. Keep good form and work within your limitations, this will be key to finding which exercises will most benfit you.
