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.

If you can access any bars such as a safety squat bar or a cambered bar
you can squat without any stress on your shoulders, other wise a belt
squat would be best to take all the stress off of your shoulder area and
allow you to stimulate hips and legs, cheers,ash
