I ruptured my achilles tendon on December 22nd playing basketball. I am having surgery on January 10th to repair the injury. I was in the 9th week of the “Bring the Forum” program as posted by Zev & Jason Norcross. Since I can’t do any of the leg exercises for at least 8 weeks, I have decided to stop following that program.
I would really appreciate any suggestions for training ideas for my lower body until I can return to squats & deadlifts, etc. The only leg exercises I can really do are leg extensions and straight leg deadlifts, but after the surgery, I won’t be able to put any weight on the leg for 3 weeks.
My initial thought is to use the EDT arm specialization program starting today for the next 8 weeks.
