5 days post operation saw my first training session back, good old bench press. Reckon it may become a strong lift for me over the coming 12 weeks!
Another shout out to the Activate Physiotherapy team at Spartan Performance (Bruce Ironsmith, Andy Thirlwell and Seong-Joon Lee) for my daily lower body treatments and guidance. I'm confident that between us my recovery is in very good hands.
I've been carrying this knee injury for over two years now. I'm pretty keen to see what I can do with a healthy pain free knee.
