Achilles tendon rupture
« on: July 12, 2011, 11:05:40 pm »

So I stopped logging my training about a month ago with a hamstring tear that I was rehabbing. Finally got back to close to full health and started going back out to rugby practice and today I had a partial rupture of my Achilles cutting during practice.

Does anyone have experience with this type of injury? surgery, no surgery? I'm getting it checked out tomorrow.

Also think I might retire temporarily from rugby and do some powerlifting for the next year or so, maybe find some track & field events once I'm fully recovered any suggestions for fun anaerobic t&f events I could try learning would be appreciated too since I think i need more than just 60m indoor to compete recreationally.

 :'( shit's rough but I just have to find something else to enjoy

edit: woops seems like there's already a thread on these, was a pretty weird sensation though, i thought someone had run up behind me and kicked me in the back of the leg, i yelled and turned around but nobody was there. . .

That's the standard definition of an achilles rupture ^^^

After hamstring rehab, did you do any conditioning for your Achilles such as running to build-up its tolerance?.

Seems to me like you went into it too fast, too soon with no respect with just how much pressure you apply to the Achilles when running?.

RIP rugby career. Just sayin
I don't lift for girls, I lift for guys on the internet



[7:31pm] adarq: ripp, being honest, it's hard for u to beat jcsbck, he's on fire lately
[7:31pm] adarq: he's just
[7:31pm] adarq: wrecking people
[7:31pm] adarq: daily




Say NO to Maroko

And also NO to anyone who associates with him. No Taylor Allan. No Adam Scammenauger. No Kelly Baggett. No Elliot Hulse. No Jtrinsey. NO JUMP USA


Don't PM me asking me training questions. I'm here for the lulz. If you want help, post on the forums and get help from all the members, maybe even me.

Ya plenty of tempo and low intensity plyo, nothing was actually wrong with it before it ruptured and it wasn't exactly at the front of my mind.

Did the plenty of tempo and low intensity plyo's replicate the amount of strain applied to it during rugby training?.

Maybe it was just bad luck.

Since your considering sprinting, I would be very weary from now that your prone to Achilles problems. You need to put an awful lot of consideration/thinking/conditioning into those achilles. Powerlifting alone won't cure the problem. Keep them conditioned at all times as the loads during sprinting on the Achilles are incredible.

Yea as close as I could, I had been back practicing for around 3 weeks before it happened, slowly working back up.

Sprinting is a pretty long term goal at the moment, just thinking of powerlifting since I'll have something low impact to train for over the next year or two and it will at least help having a big strength ceiling to work with once I am ready to start doing sprints or any kind of reactive training again.

gut says scam after 20 seconds on the site.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.
