Alright, I basically trained like a powerlifter prior to my knee injury that I sustained playing basketball. I tore my ACL and MCL in my left knee in January and then had reconstructive surgery in March (patellar tendon autograft).
I'm getting to the point in my rehab where I must get stronger on my own according to my doctor. I want to start getting back into shape too. I'm carrying too much fat.
I've just sorta been training like a bodybuilder while I've healed from surgery. Basically all my upper body lifts have gone up and I've gained a ton of muscle too.
It's getting time to get ready to return to the court (intramurals at college), and I need to get in shape and become strong again so I can beast on fools in the post. I also want to keep my upper body as strong as possible. I'm probably gonna lean out as I exercise more and more, but I'm tweaking my diet too. Not worried about that atm.
I'd just like some advice from you all on how to get ready cardiovascularly and muscularly for sports. I was instructed to not do any leg extensions and I don't have much stability in my left knee yet due to muscular imbalance. I've been doing box squats, leg presses, and ghr/reverse hypers, as well as ab work.
What have yall got for me? haha
