The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    ACL surgery

    Well, almost two years after tearing my acl skiing, reconstructive surgery is only two months away. To say the least, not looking forward to this, but it's something that needs to be done, seeing as I continue to retear it despite being careful, and frankly, I really don't wanna be careful (no sports, no nothing like that) till I die. Luckily I was able to continue to workout during the waiting time, even if I didn't push as hard on legs as I probably would have before injuring myself.

    That said, fear aside and all that, has anyone else on the board gone through it? If so, how bad should I expect it, and what sort of recovery time am I looking at - for walking, working out, and finally sports. Done some research on the matter, but I'd like to hear any stories if possible.

    It'll be 3-6 month's to get back to normal, depending on how hard you rehab. During High School, we had a number of guy's get ACL tears, and that was the usual time it took for them to back in to the swing of things again.

    a good friend of mine had his ACL and MCL rebuilt last year. Took him about 3 months before he could sort of jog around enough to QB playing football and about 6 months before he could keep up with me again. I still think he's lost a bit of his 'cuts' but he moves pretty good now.
