Injuried Hip


Hello, guys, I'm Sergio from Chile (which is not in the list when one signs up!)
i've just found your site and it's really useful. i was wondering if you could help me:
I have a pinched hip (actually both but the right one is much worse) a really common injury for tennis and soccer players (i play soccer and practiced kick boxing for 7 years) this injury requires surgery when the labrum is broken, before so you are supposed to live a normal life.

sadly normal doesn't mean normal for us sportsppeople . i'm not supposed to squat or kick any more! not even jogging for more than 30 minutes with intervals of 3 mins running and 1 resting. i feel really bad about this condition as i cannot train normally. so any suggestions on cardio worout? leg workout? martial arts training? (i still need one more yrear to get my 1st dan degree) i will deeply appreciate any comments on this.
sincerely yours
