Yeah, I've only been dealing with pain for 4-5 months and it was for the most part gone while resting the last week. I have been so not active that it's scary- going to start with 1 sad little leg lift every other day. What a grueling workout! Ha. Gosh my life has changed. Will probably avoid quad sets for a while since so many people can't tolerate them.

The last time I rested for a week all the pain went away and I was back to normal. This time resting didn't bring me back to normal 100% but pretty close. So I guess I have no choice but to work with what I have.

The reason I do quad sets is because SLRs give me some amt of hip pain so my physio thought it better to do the quad sets, and I must say I have noticed an improvement since I started these physio moves.

When we say quad sets are we talking squeezing the quads with legs down or lifting each leg alternately?

Squeezing the quads with legs down. the only reason i think they're working for me is not because of the strengthening (yet) but because i'm learning to activate the muscle. but SLRs may be better tolerable for many?
