Hi everyone, just need some powerlifiting training advice.
Earlier this year I strained my quads/IT band during squats. Just as I was getting back to form I had to go for a long awaited rotator cuff surgery.
Anyway, I back in the gym now but can only do leg work, as the shoulder is not up to strength or full ROM yet. I want to start progressing my squat but I’m not sure of the best way to organise a training routine based mainly around legs.
Should I just train as normal, build back upto 5x5 heavy squats with some supplementary leg work afterwards for each session with rest day between? Or, should I have a heavy day, rest day then say light work such as HIIT exercise bike stuff or light high rep machine work?
Thanks in advance for any advice and ideas.
