Deadman Quad Raises

Got a question about these from this week’s mag…

Is this a bad exercise choice for someone with surgically repaired knees? I just think it may put too much stress on the joint for me.

I’ve torn my acl 2x(same knee) and I have a cadaver acl now, plus 3 scopes in that knee too.

I’ve had three knee surgeries, and looking at the pictures made me wince. It’s one of those things that look like it won’t hurt until the next day, when your knees are aching so bad you don’t even want to walk.

Indeed, avoid this exercise if you have any knee problems.

bummer, way to get my hopes up with that exercise!!

jk, but c’mon let’s put some caveats up when we display new exercises eh?
