I’m skeptical. I think you need to push/brace with your legs, for the equilibrium, whether or not the leg force is being used to clamp the piece. I don’t think you’re right with the assertion that bracing with your legs will unsettle your sitting position; just the opposite. Think of doing seated rows with the rope & pulley at the gym. You have to have your feet up against the machine. I don’t have a horse, but I’ve tried some shaving work with a piece clamped to the outfeed table of my jointer. It was nearly impossible, because I couldn’t brace myself.
