Don’t want to hijack thread but thought I would post here as it’s relevant. I’m awaiting surgeon for ACL reconstruction which has a slight tear and cartilage trim, it’s about 6 weeks away. I’m trying to strengthened lower body to hopefully give me a head start to rehabilitation. I was wondering if by squating I could possibly do more harm than good? Is there any exercises I should be focusing on to aid recovery.

Thanks for any help.

You shouldn’t do anymore harm to the ACL anyway!
(No rotation etc)

In general it depends on the degree of damage to the meniscus – but you should be fine – if there is pain stop of course.

You could always use machinces if you wnated to be very careful
