    Post-injury rebuilding

    I tore up my knee in November, and now I can finally go out for a spin. It still hurts occasionally, but i have been doing a 35-40k loop twice a week recently.

    Is there anything else i can help speed my recovery/ muscle building? I do squats with a small bit of weight, but it looks like i have plateaued out. No more growth, and not much more power.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
    I don't play god.
    Playing is for children.

    We need significantly more info here. As previousely stated, did you sprain your knee or did you have a surgical procedure?
    Are you working for power, or are you working for strength, there is a big difference?
    What else are you doing besides squats?
    What is your previouse experience in training in the gym?

    For instance, I have partial tear in my acl. I found that getting my hamstrings as strong as possible added stability to my knee. But as the others said, without details, it's hard/potentially dangerous to give out advise.
