?!? Questions ?!?

I am no expert in weight lifting what so ever, so I would really appreciate some help. See I have a pretty messed up shoulder I have to get physical therapy and the whole works. Any ways that means no upper body lifting so I decided to start lifting legs. All I really do is leg press since I’m not overly sure what to do, also I do some of those 1 legged squats and calf things. But what should I be working on I want to build strength in my legs so I Have a powerful base and can work on my explosiveness.

Squat, squat, squat, and squat some more.

Can you rest the bar across your back? Upper is better (IMHO) but you can keep it a little lower around your rear delts as well. To emphasis what wukka said, if there is one exercise one could do for the rest of his life, it should be squats. And dont be one of those dbags that does like 500 lbs for a quarter squat.

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.
