    do you have a knee problem? if you do, there pretty much isn't anythng you can do for legs

    if it is a lower back problem then do seated leg press

    Why did your doctor tell you not to squat?
    Also does he mean for now or for ever?
    I've had 5 knee surgeries (none due to lifting) 1 acl reconsruction ans 4 scopes and I find squating helps my knees.
    There is no reason for you not to squat if you use correct form and don't jump out the window with the weight.

    leg presses and hack squats work well.

    Try box squats. and good mornings start out light. Once you stregnthen your back you'll be surpised how many less back problems you'll have.
