damn man wtf. that really sux that it tweaked when racing your daughter, of all things.

hoping it heals up quick.


Not yesterday when it happened or the day before but yes they are routinely in my programming.

FWIW I don't think anything could have prevented this. I was done with my sprint work and my daughter wanted to race me lol so one more I did. The foot strike was just weird. Idk if it caught the grass weird or what but it was an instant pop on the foot strike.

Was able to get into the PT this morning before work. Looks like it's a small tear about 4" above the knee so not near any muscle belly insertion point (good I think?) and on the middle band of muscle (there's 3/4? muscles to the hamstring). We ran through some tests to check flexibility (not much lol) then did some a stim to break down the fibers in the right direction and some cold electro therapy to stimulate some healing. Finished with some dry needling (FUCKIN HATE) to relax the nerve bundles and that made it FEEL a ton better. Now at work and the ibuprofen is wearing off its much more tender. 3 more PT sessions next week and we're reevaluating. Fingers crossed.

.....guess who just got cleared to start BW only exercises?!?! I still have some bruising but no pains. Occasionally it's tight at the end of a stretch and the muscle will "twitch" and it's weak trying to catch loads butthe pt said I can start really slow tempo work to gain some strength back.

HELL YES.

Absolutely gonna try. To keep myself from being, well, myself, I'm going with a couple buddies on Monday after work. They'll literally remove me from the gym if necessary lol

Ok so.... I was sooooooo careful I didn't go to the gym that Monday, instead I did some BW stuff at home.

But then I went to shoot on that Wednesday and well, long story short I hyperextended my right knee (same as the hammy leg) and ended up with some ligament strains. Yeefuckinhaw.

Fast forward. I've been Uber careful. I've decided BEFORE attempting to shoot/play again I should probably make sure I have a little base strength back. Enter this week. Plan is to cut workouts to 2 working sets of very light weight and monitor for swelling/soreness.

So last night I did just that. The knee and hamstring made it through a light warmup w/ no depth jumps and a modified ATG workout. 95lb Patrick step-ups to activate the VMO and some very light hamstring work before a set of 145x10 pause squats and a 235x5 set. Knee actually feels BETTER after the workout and continues to look alright this afternoon.

Overall is positive. Definitely down on strength (duh) but I felt the bar moved quick and easy on the reps. Taking today off just as a precaution and hopefully will be back at it Wednesday with a similar game plan. I am SERIOUSLY missing hooping/dunking but being back in the gym was very therapeutic mentally. Y'all be safe!
