I pulled my hamstring just short of 4 weeks ago playing softball. I did not go to the doctor, I put in some research and deduced that it is a grade 2 pull. My training is incredibly important to me, I do not think I would be able to handle society without lifting heavy ass shit.
I dropped my WSBB style to a modified sheiko program because the pain was limiting a lot of the movements I do for WSBB. On the sheiko deadlift days I would not go above 2 plates and just do a lot more reps or work from a deficit. This evening I got a little to confident and tried to hit all the sheiko sets for deads, I got as far as 315 and felt another pop. I limped my ass out of the gym after being in denial for two more sets. I plan on competing in a meet this december and really want to be 100% by then with recovery and strength as well.
Has anyone had any experience with coming back from hamstring injuries? What exercises did you keep in to maintain strength and speed up recovery?
