    Hello everyone,

    I am starting physiotherapy soon for a problem with my knees. I was starting Christophers/the Bill Starr routine but I cannot perform squats for awhile, and it seems to be a pretty core part of that program. :hs:

    Are there any routines anyone would suggest that do not involve squatting or using the quadricep muscles? (seriously)

    You could do a Chest/Tricep, Back/Bicep, Shoulder split? Every other day or monday wednesday friday, anything really.

    it would probably be best that you stop working legs until your knees are fully healed, you really dont want to fuck anything up further :hs:

    You could use this as an opportunity to bring your hamstrings up to balance with your quads, if you have that problem.

    I'm not really worried about what hip abductor exercises, etc. because I am fairly confident they won't have a huge effect one me

    the big deal is not to do squats (full range or otherwise) or work my quadriceps, at least not at this point

    I've been trying to do this, I haven't started physio yet and I am fairly confident as well that this is just a muscle imbalance problem (I had this problem when I was in high school as well)

    there was a Nautilus machine I was using at the gym but if there is anything else you guys could suggest that would be great too

    For Hamstrings? Good Mornings and Romanian deadlifts hit them pretty well I think.

    For a routine I would not do Chris's routine. Since you can't squat it won't be very useful for you. I would make my own routine. Make a list of all the excercises you can do. As for legs I would just stick the the therapy and w/e movements your allowed to do. Go light if you must be concentrating more on getting your knee's healthy again. At this time in your life I wouldn't gear yourself towards weightlifting. You can still go to the gym but don't push it too hard.
