    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.

    I had all my cartilage removed in my right knee last October. Doc drilled 8 holes in my femur to make scar tissue so I can wait out a knee replacement. I’m too active & too heavy (300lbs) so I would wear out my new knee quickly. I’m 45. My leg press was at 715lbs. After surgery my doc said to lower it to about 200lbs. I said, Doc, that’s impossible to do, I weigh 300! I work in sports med, luckily. My advice, lower your weights, do high reps, and add some Deca to your meds.

    I had a major accident when i was 21, now 31 and shattered my shin bone. Since then my leg is weak as fuck, and it hurts to do squats and leg shit. Friends at the MMA gym I train at are physical therapists, and they told me I need to strengthen my leg. It was hard for me to accept this because any leg activity hurts and feels as though it is further damaging my knee. They also said I needed to correct the way I walk.

    I recently got insurance for first time in many years and went to doctor about my knee. My 300+ pound female doctor immediately diagnosed my knee as having arthritis. She said everything my friends said. To improve the knee I need to strengthen the quad and improve my walking technique.

    I have an appointment with a physical therapist on Thursday so I'll learn more.
