I tore my achillies tendon last saturday and i had surgery this past wednesday. Im in a non-weight barring cast for two weeks then on a walking boot for a few months, I should be able to train again in a month at the longest but that will be upper body only, no lower body training is allowed, is there anything i can do in the mean time to limit the amount of muscle loss, my diet, anything! I pretty much have to lay around all day and its driving me nuts!!
