Had laproscopic hernia surgery a few weeks back and I’ll be back on the weights in the coming weeks. I want to be cautious and based on what I have read, I need to stay away from squat and deadlift longer than anything else. Not only are these my favorite lifts, they are of course the best all around lower body lifts.
My question is, what leg lifts should I use while I can’t do squat and deadlift? I’m not a bodybuilder or a strength competitor. My goals are increased size and strength. Thanks.
