A long awaited update...

Well, it's been 1 month and 2 days since my ACL reconstruction. I'm recovering VERY quickly, far ahead of the standard timeline and faster than I could've hoped for. My knee could barely move near 90 degrees and nowhere near lockout 2 days post-op, but now I can fully lockout under my own strength and have at least 143 degrees of flexion. 150-160 is my natural range, so I still have a good bit to go, but I've talked to some people who didn't even reach 90 degrees until 3 weeks. I still wont be able to jump, squat, deadlift or run around for another month at least.

Current goals

  • Squat 185x100@185
  • Deadlift 500@190
  • Squat 405@190
  • Snatch 50kg KB
  • Bend 5/16x8" FNL Grade 8 Bolt
  • Overhead 2 100lb DB's
  • Bench 300@185
