quads and leg press

How deep would you suggest going on leg press?
Are leg extensions worth it?

because i have dislocated my knee, im staying away from squats for a while.
The doc has given me the all go for training but, i want to be safe.

    As deep as you can mate. I find that if my knees are in my mouth, then I'm doing it right

    Surely this would cause hip rotation and stress the lower back. I could be wrong. I like to go low, but not that low.

    Wipe the sand outta yer fanny and get in the f***ing squat rack!

    I fooked my back up going to deep on leg press, you need to be careful, as above make sure your ass and lower back is tight in the seat.

    Aye just go down comfortably low - dont try to be a hero and go as far as you can.

    Stop short of lockout and continue the reps - far more important than trying to out-man your partner on trying to bite your knees.

    Pain is just weakness leaving the body..
