It was a great day today! This afternoon I had an appointment with Dr. Burns. He said the tendon should be grown back to the bone 100% and I’m free to do anything that I want! He was extremely pleased with the way it looked and with the strength of my hamstring. I pretty sure I do a lot more work than his average patient. I’m not pain-free, but that will reduce with time, as will the swelling that’s still there.
My visit to the doctor’s office took up my normal workout time, so I had to train in the evening…something I rarely do. As it turned out, I had a terrific chest workout. It was the strongest I’ve had since before my injury. I’m sure I’ll be plenty sore tomorrow!
Speaking of soreness, I pushed it on my leg workout yesterday. My ham tendon is a little sore and stiff today, but not bad at all. What is sore are my hamstrings, adductors, and glutes…..in the good way! Guess I’ll have to work harder on the quads next leg workout.
Here’s my chest workout today:
Bench Press 8 sets 5-10 reps
Incline Press 6 sets 6-10 reps
Pec Fly machine 4 sets 10-12 reps.
