E175 | Squatting Heavy After Total Knee Replacement
On this edition of the Doc and Jock Podcast Friday short Doc Danny answers a listener question. Kevin wants to know if it’s ok to squat heavy on total knee replacement.
Doc Danny answers the question in the most hated way ever: with a MAYBE. Danny explains that as long as the mobility and stability in the joint pass some tests then yes, Kevin can squat heavy (up to 80-90% of his former 1 rep max).
How does Kevin know if his knee is mobile & stable enough to back squat you ask?
Listen to Episode 175 to find out.
(P.S. the answer is yes! most people can squat heavy on a total knee replacement and it’s safer than running a marathon.)
