PostSubject: exercices for leg training   Sun Jan 20, 2013 3:44 pm

Hi everyone,

i am searching some inspiration for leg training.

I watched the Al Kavadlo progression video and i can do all these things, except of a perfect pistol squad.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=NdaS-I56PpI

My problem at pistol squad is that i can do it on the left side but my right side is injured in the knee so i can´t do it actually.

I know these movements very well cause i do freestyle skating for years now.

There are moves like this i trained for years.

So now i want to restart leg training and want slowly train my right knee with things that are not as bad for the knees than pistols.

Any ideas out there?

Learn & use the front squat, its much easier on knees.But i find it harder on the actual leg muscles and thats good. i do few types here check it out.This is 1 whole routine, i cycle the rep ranges they are always changing.

Thank you very much.

Nice variations of different weighted squats.

I will try some variations.

I have to do weighted ones, cause i don´t feel unweighted ones at all and can do a lot of reps without problems because of the skating practice.

I also tried asistet pistols for my right leg. This works very well cause i can decrease the pressure on the my knee but can stress the muscle.

One of my actually favorites are hack squats, cause my knee is not bending over my feet (less stress for the knee) and i can put a lot of weight.

Oh that's a pity :/// Yeah I guess you'll have to ease off that right knee for a while especially with pistols as they're pretty tough on the knee...

I guess just some Bodyweight squats or maybe step-ups, like find a high step or something and just lift with one leg at a time.

Good luck and recovery.

I also love doing weighted, high platform step-ups. They are awesome on the legs, but I particularly using them with my log outside in a zercher hold.
