    now train for strength?

    ok, my legs are fairly huge.....
    now I want them to be stronger....
    but keep some hypertrophy going

    Cut back and working up slowly with the squat, due to knee injury.
    Only at 60 lbs right now.

    Should I go for lower reps higher weights though?
    I think I'll hold off on heavy until I see my physiotherapist though.

    Any thoughts?

    How long ago was the knee injury and are you sure its 100%?

    I have a great squat program im doing right now but it isnt for the weak hearted. Im doing 18 sets a week with over 80% of my max!
