Default Building leg muscles back after total knee replacements?

I had total knee replacements done 5 months ago and have been through rehab and now i need to build my legs and glutes back. Doc said just stay away from heavy squats.

Anybody else have this done and be able to build muscles back?

Im getting depressed cause they used to be muscular and strong but due to football injuries i had to have them replaced. And now they are small and weak.

Looking for best excersises to build them back up faster, cause its killing my mood to even work out anymore.

Leg press did it for me. Had a major surgery to my right knee. Physical therapy mainly focused on leg presses at high rep sets. I had so much atrophy in my leg but I was able to build muscle sticking strictly to leg press

Uh no, leg presses are terrible for your knees. Try Bulgarian split squats.

Leg presses are fine! Just warm up first. Donít listen to this clown, he has no clue what heís talking about! The only time he squats is when he sits on his boyfriends face.

I have no idea what your range of motion is... so maybe this isn't the best advice...

Goblet squats and walking lunges. Do high reps (sets of 20). Maybe you'll get some size from the high rep work, maybe not. I don't know what your genetics are and what you respond to. But what those things should do is give you flexibility, stability, strength in every day movement and hopefully do well by you into your later years.

Leg sled for me. I dont have the ligaments to stabilize squatting anymore. Wasnt getting stronger. Leg sled i can move weight and its controlled. Both my knees need work. The right one more so. I have even stopped running on the treadmill and walk on an incline to cut down the daily pain.

Find a new doc.

Squats are very good for your knees as long as you do them right. I know a guy who was doing fairly low box squats with over 800 lbs in bar and chain weight (something like 550 weight + 250 in chains) in briefs and knee wraps about a year or so after having a knee replaced. He also handled something like 950 in a squat suit fine.

Just make sure whatever weight you are doing, you keep the knees in line with the toes, and also dont allow the knees to travel too far forward. Always work with an amount of weight that you know you can maintain perfect form with, any stop if there is any knee pain.

Knee traveling forward doesnít make them bad or dangerous...

A little forward is fine, but if it goes too far forward it puts stress on the patellas. If someone has bad knees, this type of thing is more of a big deal.

whats your extension and flexion at? what degrees. within normal limits is 120 degrees flexion and 0 degrees extension. you can pretty much do any exercise, but proceed with higher rep/lower weight in beginning. strengthen the heck out of your VMO via terminal knee extensions
