      For me, sticking to heavy compound movements like squats and even deadlifts have been great for my overall leg strength. I know that may not be the best option for everyone though. I guess it depends on what kind of strength you're looking for. Just overall power?

      Not anything crazy. I had back surgery close followed by TKR. Both together killed leg strength. So really trying to get back to normal fast.

      they do if done correctly. shouldnt have wasted money on the actual bands though. they dont tighten enough and most come loose on you. elbow and knee wraps work best. ulike most of the stupid ass fools i see doing it, it is supposed to be done at the end of your workout or as your only training stimulus for the day. you tighten them down to 8 out of 10 level with 10 being a tournequet tight meaning no blood in or out which is bad. you do say 6-8 sets to failure on your quad leave them on and then 6-8 sets of hams if you can stand it. should be about 30-40% of max weight and all the sets should go to failure. same applies to arms.
      it is brutal brutal painful but works very very well. you can search the late john meadows aka mountain dogs youtube for his videos on the subject. he is actually who i learned about it from. also some good articles on musculardevelopment as well.

      like i said above if you are wearing them for the duration of your workout you are doing it completely wrong and they are not tight enough. it should be damn near unbearable by the time you get through a few sets. fight the pain and finish

      Because of issues I had/have with my lower back, I’ve been doing just air squats and walking lunges. They work great for adding strength

      from what i was taught and what i have also read is that you do a set to failure thnen wait 30-45 secs and go again. on and on for about 6-8 ests then try to switch to the other opposing muscle. so do triceps then switch to biceps or quads then hams. that is if you can take the pain and leave them on before you start the other muscle. it does hurt really bad though
