Squats are not bad for your knees if done correctly. But if you have knee injuries you can do leg extensions.
I would first consult your MD and a good PT (Physical Therapist) not a personal trainer, Sport medice kind and really look at the nature of the injury.
You may find that 3/4-1/2 squats are allowable as are leg extensions.
Unfortunately I would guess that if you suffered a serious knee injury, full squats will not be recommended. And becarefull of relying on braces and supports, one needs to remember that most times injuries and pain are your bodies way of telling you something. Take time let your body heal and work back cautiously.
Squats or leg press are a safe exercise if done correctly as they are a closed chain exercise, ie a multiple joint movement with feet against a solid base. Leg extensions are open chain, single joint movement and feet not against a solid base, which increases forces in the knee. Depending on the type of knee injury depends on which exercise you should choose. If unsure, make an appointment with a sports therapist or physio.
try lunges, they help your butt too
Not necessarily. Of course, if you exercise improperly (such as bouncing at the bottom of a squat, in my opinion) you may injure your knees. Even assuming that you exercise properly, after several decades of training your knees may hurt a bit during exercise. This does not happen to everyone. If you always warm up properly and use perfect exercise technique, it may never happen to you. Exercise selection, too, is important. For example, it is a good idea never to do heavy leg raises because they really stress the knees. Even if your knees eventually hurt during training, there may be ways to work around it. For example, if regular back squats hurt your knees, switch to box squats. Box squats are much more difficult, which means that you will use less weight; using less weight means less stress on your knees.
