I was planning on changing up the program, so I hope you don't think your earlier advice fell on deaf ears. It's just a little challenging for me because I know how to build big legs. I've always gotten comments on them when I wear shorts. So that's how I came up with the original workout (minus the girlie machine). I'm not surprised that it ended up sucking for rehab. I know you're right and need a different approach but my PT's are a woman and guy that never workout and never took part in athletics so they're not much use in helping me design a program to get back to my former strength, size and athleticism.
I workout my legs Wednesdays and Saturdays. I like going heavy on Saturdays since I get a couple days to recover afterward. So how does this workout look:
Hammer unilateral leg press (I'd like to keep this since I've never felt my quads work as hard as doing this exercise)
This is where I'm lost. I really don't know any mobility or stability exercises. I vaguely recall single legged squats giving me knee pain before I tore my ACL but I can try them today. I'll google clam shells and monster walks and try them today as I planned on working legs today during my lunch break. But if you could suggest how to organize this workout, I'd really appreciate it. Or even if a exercise(s) needs to be swapped out in the Saturday workout.
Thanks for you patience. On a positive note, today I was late for the train and had to jog 1 block. Last time this happened 6 weeks ago, I almost fell down every few steps due to lack of strength and stability. If you saw me jog today you would know something was wrong but I was much more balanced and I could feel the leg was a lot stronger. My leg wasn't giving out like last time.
