About a month ago I tore my Medial Meniscus (Cartilage on the inside of my left knee) whilst at work with some associated strains of tendons. The physio has helped to repair the tendon damage but my surgery for the Cartilage is another month away with six weeks of rehab after that before I can start squatting or dead lifting and I’m wasting away as I sit here.
Now the physio has given me the all clear to do upper body work all be it on machines at the gym, no free weights lest I slip and tear more or tear a ligament.
O.k. I can deal with that I’m a free weights guy but I can go to a commercial gym and try and bust the machines for a couple of months I can even manage single leg squats and do a few machines for my good leg.
Now here is my major problem I was in serious training for an important surfing contest and this has blown my schedule out the window, what Iï¿½??m really asking is if there is any exercise that anyone knows that I can do to maintain some form of power and strength in my injury side without putting any stress on the knee joint, Quads, Hams and Calves.
I know itï¿½??s a big ask and Iï¿½??ll run anything past the physio and doctor but I only ask here for the broad knowledge base that this forum carries.
