CMP is damage of the cartilage which is present in the underside of patella and which acts a a natural cushion and a shock absorber, over use will certainly damage, quadricep exercise may not be that damaging but squats an lunges will do though they ate exercises primarily aimed at strengthening the quadriceps. there are non impact exercises also available which will give you similar results please try that
