These are some hacks that you can do to help:
• Try moving the foot pedals higher, so your heal is higher. Put it in a good spot. This way you're not scrunched down as much.
• Just don't bend as far. Stay in that comfortable range of motion of what is comfortable for you. Go where your body allows you to and where it feels good.
