I had ACL surgery 4 months ago and I'm still not able to do things like squats or plyo...

  • What program might be best suited for someone recovering from ACL surgery?

    Did your Doctor or physical therapist provide any specific workout program or exercising to do while recovering from surgery?

      I was in physical therapy for about 3 months, but completed it.

    Are you still in rehab? Until your doctor clears you for exercise I would hold off.

      Not in physical therapy anymore, but I still need to be developing the muscles in my leg more. I'm not cleared to do anything crazy - jumping and the sort... But I really want to work out. My wife has been on here for a bit and she's doing great. I just wondered if there were any programs that anyone could suggest that might be less "leg intensive"

    What about the new True Beginner program? I have multiple sustaining back injuries, and, so far, this has been a good system to building me back up to being able to do, really, any workouts again. The program still makes you work, but it is much easier to find and stick with whatever pace is best for you. There are some squats and such, but no where close to as dramatic as other workouts. It might be something to try.

      I may have to. I wanted to jump in (figuratively) to something a tad more advanced, but that may be the way to go right now I guess. I'm having a brace fitted for my leg that should allow me to be more dynamic for squats etc., but I doubt I can wear it for some of the yoga. Thanks!
