I wanted to run Bill Starr 5x5, or pretty much any 5x5 program, but currently have a torn popliteus and some other dysfunctions in my left knee. I cannot do full ROM squats, but can do light deadlifts. Should I just run the program and substitute the squats with static squats or something till I can at least box squat?
This is my first time working around an injury, and this is the longest I’ve ever gone without squatting. I don’t want to prolong my recovery, but would like to minimize my loss in leg strength and size. I know I can work around the knee and focus more on ankle and hips, but not quite sure where to go with that.
