I am now nursing a low-grade hamstring tear and have decided to ask for some advice.
First off, the tear is just above the back of the knee. Anyone ever have this?
Secondly, I had an ACL rebuild on my left knee some years ago. This has seriously limited my range of motion:I cannot bend the knee more than 90 degrees so I cannot really work out the quad fully. As a result, even though I am very active, I have noticed the creeping tendency to have the relative strength in the quads and hamstrings off.
Does anyone have any suggestions on
how to judge the relative quad and hamstring strength – what should it be?
any good ways of strengthening the quads?
Leg extension machines are out of the question (too much stress on the knee). Partial squats and variations are ok.
thanks in advance…
