    Injured knee - need alternatives


    Hey guys,
    I've injured my knee at the gym doing squats, saw a physio yesterday who said its best i dont do squats until it gets better. what do you recommend would be a better alternative for legs?

    current leg workout is as follows:
    BB Squats - 3x10-12
    Stiff leg deadlifts -3x10-12
    BB lunges - 3x10-12
    Leg Press/hacksquat superset - 3 x 10-12

    as you can see i've focused more on compound exercises for legs as i found they gave me the best workout/results. For some reasons its only the squats (not the hack squats) that i feel pain in my knee, the other exercises are fine.

    recommendations please?
