Especially when you’ve already been out for 6.
I play semi-pro football and ever since my last game, my left knee has been KILLING me. It actually started in practice that week, non-contact.
Ever since then I’ve been having serious trouble running. I played some flag football but that made it worse. At this point, I can’t even TRY to sprint full out
Finally ran some MRIs, went to the doctor, and all that. He says tendanitis, I should refrain from putting serious strain on the leg for at least 6 weeks. I can start doing a little running in 3 weeks he says.
I wanted to spend this off-season on the track and in the weightroom, not my bedroom :mad:
I’ve got the e-book, was very ready to put serious SPEED work in. I’ve always felt my top-end speed and acceleration had a lot of room for improvement because my high school track coach was really only interested in making us 400 runners.
Anyway, the only exercises he’s suggested are isometric ones, where I left my legs for 5 seconds, then bring them down, repeat 75x, 3x a day.
Anything else? Anyone?
I get this feeling that not only am I not going to get faster, I’m going to get slower.
An e.m.s machine would also help. Charlie has stated in his material that he had a athlete with an injury that used ems and came back a week later and ran a pb. It could be used in strength and recovery, for 60 bucks why not.
Give Physiobalm from SNAC a try; it can help with tendonitis, imflammation, etc. . I have used it with great results and continue to use it if I feel any problems arising. Also review a previous tread re: it and you will have addt’l info. Good Luck!
