    Heavy front squats, mod rep back squats and high rep leg press has worked for me
    Knees have felt loads better since dropping extensions

    do you track your weight on scale or don’t bother? I just go off tape and progression in the gym now now as the scales just make me a fat cunt lol

    Have you tried front squatting, I find it uses less lower back and more through the core

    Never tried it mate...i could maybe do a few light sets after legpress to get into it, plus quads would be pre exhausted too so no need for big weights?

    I much prefer it over back squats as main quad exercise
    Takes a little time to get used to as balancing the bar across the chest feels awkward at first
    Start light and maybe on the Smith to get technique but once you get it I think it's a great exercise
