Making Progress!

Just got back from my weekly rehab at the hospital and things are looking good.  Had the chance to speak with the doc and it seems like the ligament is strong and I’m starting to gain more volume in my leg.  As for power output, my left leg is obviously still weaker than the right but they said that it should get stronger as I start to add some new exercises to my training regimen.

That being said, we worked on some new jumping and landing drills.  One involved jumping off of a block and rebounding back.  The PT also had me jump up and do half turns in mid-air.  Both exercises seem rather boring  to a normal athlete (or even a normal person) but I was having a ball, given that I was only able to do some simple squatting exercises over the last several months.  I bet the PT thought I was nuts because I kept wanting to do more!

Anyway, I have to remember to work smart and not over-do.  I’m nearing my 5 month post-surgery mark, where things should start to feel pretty good again.  I can’t wait to see more improvements and to be able to be back in the gym 100%!

    Sounds great, are you starting to do any basic tumbling? You should definitely be doing a lot of the back roll extension drill with perfect hollow throughout….
