Have a knee injury that is healing slow, the doc said lateral and medial ligament sprain, but I’m thinking it’s more of a tear, cuz it’s been 3 weeks and it still smarts (so I’m gonna go back and see a better doc…).
So it’s still too tender to do any flexion with load. Squats are OK to do, no pain, but I can tell my hamstring strength is fading (can’t sit back as well as I used to). I used to do leg curls on the machine (largely to save my back for squats and deadlifts).
Did a search, seems Russian deadlifts, good mornings and other stiff legged deads are the only “no or low flexion” options.
What do you all prefer?
I tried some stiff legged deadlifts last night and am sore, but I havent worked hams for about a month now so I don’t know how effective they were…
And, since I’m always looking for ways to forego the machines, this seems like a good opportunity to do that for hams.
