  1. 3:22 Min the study by Campos et al. deals with muscular adaptation in general training. It has nothing to do with OA. What makes you sure, that an OA-patient would tolerate those high loads, which are required for doing no more than 3-5 reps of MVC ?

  2. Thank you, should a middle aged guy with torn medial minescus, transverse, do strength training, I used to do squats at 45 to 60 degrees max.

  3. I really appreciate the information.

    I know this is an older video, so there's no guarantee this comment will be seen, but I have a quick question: what do you do for someone with a severe case of knee osteoarthritis?

    My fiance is in pain daily, and bending his knees is seen to be difficult. I want to help get him back to a point where he can start doing squat exercise again, but is there anything he can do in the mean time to help build quad strength? Thank you!

  4. Hello Guys,
    I'm first year in PT school at Fontys University in English Strean.
    Your videos are really helpful.

    Thank you for your hard work!
    I wish I become one day such a good physio like you!



  5. I'm sorry but I'm not understanding this. How is a person with severe Osteoarthritis in both knees able to do these exercise, I have bone on bone in one knee. I am able to walk miles, but can't do stairs, squat or leg press, These exercises would tear up my knee. Quite frankly I was very disappointed in what I saw in this video. I agree exercise is needed, but don't see how a person like me could perform such movements. Not unless I wanted to invite serious pain and injury. So I have to do walking in a pool for strengthening. Where the water resistance is my leg weight training. Isometric leg exercises. Walking.

  6. What is your thought on early stage OA rehab in relative younger athletes? Some studies suggest that weight training is associated with increased incidence of OA, other studies rather describe a protective effect.

  7. How much pain should someone have during the exercises? Using xRM is great to train with, but if the patient complains of too much pain than it's less ideal…

  8. do u think it is important to consider distance between 2 legs during leg press? because i found that wider leg distance is pain-free than doing the narrower one. what do you guys think?

  9. Hey guys. Thank you so much for your content. It would be great if you include this kind of training vids in your assessment app. greetings from germany
