Re: Weak quad...help!!

I would have that looked at medically. That could possibly be more of a back problem than an actual quad problem. While it is not impossible quads do not usually weaken like that. I would have that evaluated by your physician to rule out any of the more significant possibilities. If nothing else is wrong, then some general strengthening with lunges, squats, and leg lifts would be a good start. Activity modificcation would also be recommended.
