You shouldn't be pulling your leg. Your nose/tail is supposed to lift because of your weight shifted towards the opposite side of the board... The more flex, the higher the lift. But a good manual doesn't need to be a high lift, balance is way more style!

Ps maybe you can try to shift your weight by shifting your board to the other side with use of your hips actively, that might work

Yeah, my problem when doing tail presses isn't the pulling on the lead leg -- it's the thigh on the back leg. Holding a one-legged crouch for any significant length of time is great exercise

On the plus side, this'll balance the exercise my lead leg gets when skating around.
