help from the experts

I have had a knee scope a few months back and now I am back to training legs still dont do any squats or leg extensions (doctors orders) but I have been doing 3 diffrent leg press machines. (hammer, icaran, cybex) my leg that I had the surgery on is smaller that the other will this balance out in time or sould I work the one leg more? any help would be great. I like to keep my reps between 10-12 and get a good feel because being 6'1" i dont want my hips and joints to come into play Just the quad muscles doing all the work.

If your body part is capable, it will return to full strength from regular training. Id make sure to mentally concentrate on your weak leg during movements, make sure you press full throttle. If not your strong leg will automatically take over.

take it from a guy who is a expert at knee surgerys. lol i have had two torn quads and my left knee scoped twice for meniscus damage. place feet a little higher than normal on the press and place all weight on the heel of your foot while keeping foot flush with the platform. the higher knee placement will take the stress off the knee and relieve some of the pressure. also do your legs one at a time until the weaker one catches up. keep reps fairly high. 12 to 20. that should get rid of most problems n time.

BTW, Lats, sorry to hear about all the knee injuries! (Damn!)

Unilateral work is a good idea. The potential problem doing bi-lateral work with a weaker wheel is that it can cause hip and low back problems if the imbalance persists. I would do unilateral work, getting as much reps with the weak leg (do this one first), then simply matching that with the strong leg. (High reps are also a good idea, as this will mean lower weight and better stabilization of your hips / low back.) As strength starts to balance out, gradually start with bilateral presses, but keeping with unilateral work until strength and size balances out.

Try doing your extensions one leg at a time as this will also help other than that all the above mentioned info was great info and i agree with it 100% best wishes wyldeone.
