After reading the 4 Seasons of Lifting on CT's new site I got real jazzed up about the Olympic lifting phase and wanted to give it a go. I decided to spend a week practicing some drills to get more proficient at the movements. Naturally, I hurt my knee
During a clean I think I got under the bar too deep too quickly and caused the bar to fall into the catch rather than a crisp rack. It's not a big injury by any means but I'll have to give the left leg a break for a week or two. Vent over I feel better!
Now, what to do to pass the time?! The upper body is good to go, so I can definitely spend a week or two working on the mirror muscles. Maybe a steady diet of pullups, benching/pressing, and using all the cool looking hammer strength machines I never touch?
I'll mention that I'm not looking for advice on the injury, I know the rules here it was more to just get it off my chest and this is my favorite section of the forum to chat with. My girlfriend is a NP and neighbor is a DPT so I'm in good hands there
