Hey Frank, I went the Reverse Hyper route because of all of the great things I have read about them for rehab,etc and I found the Reverse Hyper made my back significantly worse (Surprised me big time).

Solid. You rock!

Re: How can I decrease strength loss in the legs

Pistols on a platform/box? Would make it easier and not have to hold the non squatting leg straight out.

Your google-fu is weak mon amis.

Which is basically a Big Step-Up. And I wouldn't bother doing it pistol-style. Most people round their lower back during pistols and maybe that would aggravate your back?

I'm thinking a belt squat might because it basically looks like a PL squat. Wide stance, big torso lean and the weight is anchored to your lower back. Gotta try it and see I guess.

You are bang on. About a month ago my back felt completely pain free (it was an illusion). I was doing pistols and during my final rep re-aggravated my back to a point that was worse than I have ever felt. I then used the Reverse Hyper which magnified the pain further. I am going to try the belt squats today or tomorrow, the prowler also seems to do the trick in a sadistic kind of way.
