    Leg excercises with a Bum knee

    Need you guys help...I just got my MRI results back after a 2 months of knee pain and found out i have no cartilage and arthritis in my right knee. Squats are out, but what kind of leg exercises can i do now? i don't want my legs looking puny cause i can't work them, and afraid to wear shorts like alot of these fitness dudes on youtube...this is upsetting

    I have a similar situation in my right knee and I am able to do deads and for squats I use a smith machine or squat press machine. In addition knee sleeves have been a help in keeping my knees stable considering I have a lot of damage to cartilage in both knees due to playing sports and running.

    There's some treatments that do cartilage replacement/repair which can delay the need for knee replacement.

    Here's one article on that:

    I am looking at getting such treatments as well as I am an active person and knee replacements might not last long for me. Hopefully insurance will cover such treatments.

    Not the same but ive been wearing 3/4 length compression pants under sweat pants every leg day after pulling my hamstring playing softball. Id wear the compression pants with a knee brace. Then I would do any and every leg workout that doesn't bother my knee.
