I have leaned forward a bit sometimes to avoid pushing too much....but I've seen on the program "You are what you eat"...to put your feet on a low stool so that your knees are higher than the pelvis. Easy to make I would think...one horizontal board and two vertical with little half moons carved out..lol!
I've never owned a padded seat...don't like them at all.
I've found the rounder the profile of the seat, the better positioning for bms. The flatter the seat...the more leg numbing happens.
