Best knee ROM to train quads to Minimise PFJ load.

Patients with patellofemoral pain often need quads training. Being careful about the ROM can maximise load on the muscle and minimise load on the joint.

If you were targeting inner range quads what would you recommend

Hi Ian You can often have success with isometrics in inner range, ie at 20, or 30. they are effective and often less pain provoking. they are also less likely to unsettle the fat pad. these too can be done on the leg press, against a ball, or simply statically. Otherwise if you want to work through inner range then standing pulling back against theraband can be good for a lower load exercise.
