Well its about time

I finaly got to start my Physical therapy today woohoo...but unfortunately I was informed of some rather sad sad news...miss magic fingers is no longer working there I are saddest but oh well...basically I did alot of low impact exercises with resistance bands yippie...little warm up and cool down on the stationary which felt pretty good...I thought I would be doing leg exstendtions and curls but they said it was a bit soon for that...and they said I could walk on it if I wore my brace...but not for too long...no more than 20 minutes any longer and I should stop and rest it for awhile...so things are slowly getting back into the swing of things...They forbid me to do squats for at least a couple more weeks...so..I have been working on formulating a new workout plan post PT so I dont over do it...and my back is better also which Im glad of...I didnt exspect that to last long..sigh..its so nice to get started finaly...

Im going to have to seriously watch myself from now on...I cant keep getting hurt and haveing down time like this...I wont reach my goal if I do...so no more angery lifting for me sigh....

Yep. Not only do you have to watch yourself if you want to reach your goal, but also, you're risking developing arthritis the more you hurt yourself. Yes, I am Sister Mary Sunshine today.

I'm glad you're getting back in the swing of things, sucks that your favorite isn't there anymore.

When you get back to lifting, focus on core strength which will help in rehab.

I think you need to strengthen your overall body and how it works together before you can go back to the core compound movements.

Alot of isometrics will help keep you flexible.

I've never had an injury and I powerlift.

It's all about your form and how you are controlling the weight.

I'd recommend looking at your negatives and focusing on your power, rather than the positive part of the movement.

This is true for all exercises, but esp Squats, DL and Bench.
