Both very good suggestions Scott however I am leaning towards option 1 as I don't want any further repercussions down the line.

I'm not sure what repercussions you mean. Actually unilateral training will create a cross-over effect that sustains strength in the untrained limb.

Quote:With option/suggestion 1 how would that work doing MR's ? Say for example my leg Press thigh set consisted of 375kg 6x4 (9 tonne total volume) how would one offset and even get to that doing solely open kinetic chain exercises ? My gyms pretty limited in terms of leg equipment so for the time being ill have leg extension and lying leg Curl at my disposal. I typically use DB lying Ham, SDL's / RDL's, smith squats, leg Press machines etc but all of these are out of the question due to limited ankle stability and pressure that I can subdue too.

If you can't do 2 sets of what would be 8-12 during a compound that hits the quad, hams and glutes, do 2 sets of 8-12 each for isolation open chain exercises for each of these muscle groups.

Can't do 2 x 10 legs press
Do instead: 2 x 10 knee ext, 2 x 10 ham curl, 2 x 10 ankle cuff glute extension or some sort.

Quote:Do you think an alternative option instead of training heavy legs is to just focus on upper body ? Jump from tier II up to Tier III? I know calorie output won't be anywhere as near but it'll be as close as it can get. I have two weeks left of tier II.

<sarcasm on>
Another option would be to not train at all. You could just swim, surf the web all day, or take up billiards, too.
<sarcasm off>

Yes, of course you could just not train legs altogether if you wanted to and completely rest.

LOL!!! Sure.

(BTW< I might move these posts out of this thread as this one is for the most frequently asked Q's.

Either a new thread or this one is where most FT Q's have been going:
