I am waiting to get reconstructive surgery on my ACL and was wondering if anyone has any good workouts I should do to strengthen my knee before surgery?

Jogging, stretching and slowly do some squats

Strengthen your hamstrings(curls, single leg bridges etc.) as they assist the ACL for stability. I'm not sure about jogging(as mentioned in a prior comment), I'd personally look at biking, elliptical or walking vs running on an unstable knee.

Its been a few months since I tore it so I have most of my mobility back. I have been focusing on trying to build my quad muscles so that I can have an easier recovery. Thank you for the input with the elliptical I haven't tried one of those yet
