Earlier this summer I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with patellofemoral and told not to squat while I went through physical therapy. I did as suggested and worked a ton on flexibility. The good news is that the patellofemoral has gone away, but I think I may have some lasting damage to my knees so until I can go in and see the ortho, I am unable to squat. I moved away from 5/3/1 this summer to concentrate on the rehab exercises and stretching. I am now coming back and while I can't squat (or do anything heavy that involves deep knee flexion), I can deadlift. I was thinking of setting my program up like this
Any thoughts on the above?
