    Jumpers KNee

    I have jumpers knee in my left knee, I am trying to build up my legs but I am restricted with my movement in my left leg, Pretty much I am able to do leg Curls and Press. Lunges are out as it puts to much presure on the front of me knee. Any suggestions welcomed.

    Do leg extensions, best thing for knee problems. Also equally strengthen all the muscles around your knee cap(patella)

    Leg extensions is great advice. Be sure to focus on the contraction at the top and set the machine so your leg doesn't go past a 90 degree angle at the bottom as its more about the top contraction and not a full rom with the leg extension especially when doing rehabilitation. I would actually recommend a 100-110 degree angle at the bottom extending to a 180 at the top focusing on squeezing your quads!

    Another good exercise is bw/lightly weighted step ups starting with a slightly elevated surface and gradually increasing the height as your improve then the weight uaed.

    straight legged dead lifts are great as well since you can maintain muscular strength in your legs without putting much pressure on your knee.

    Also work on learning and implementing self myofascial release aka foam rolling. Really focus on the IT band as well which the first couple weeks will usually be pretty painfull but this means you need it!
    Obssession is a word lazy people use to describe dedication.

    If your not nervous before going to the gym your probably not working out hard enough (my new favorite quote)
