    Hi Team,
    Looking at health as top priority, I’d be glad hearing your view on this. I understand the leg extension is not inherently bad, but if you start with not great knees it may bother you. Would you recommend swapping to a leg press in these situations? Or otherwise, always best to incorporate some extensions from time to time, as what you don’t do you will lose and get worse? I mean, if you don’t do it, the problem will get even worse?

    As good swap options, would you say leg press, sled pushes?

    In absence of a hack squat or pendulum, I also need to find another good option for the lengthened range, and I was wondering whether stationary lunges or split squats may cut it. Any suggestions very welcome.

    Thanks as always.

    Thanks Joe.
    You really help us learning the principles.
    My case is more of patella syndrome, lots of running over the years.
    Gym equipment and etiquette where I’m based now in Canada sucks a bit TBH, so I need to be creative.
