Wee update for anyone still lurking here/paying attention lol.

After 2x GPSI appointments, ultrasounds and an MRI I have a diagnosis on my knee injury.

What was initially thought to be an ACL/meniscus tear with pain transference to the top of my calf and bottom of my hamstring is actually a tear in my cartilage at the top of my tibia where the biceps femoris inserts.

At this stage surgery isn't required and I'm waiting on a referral to a specialist rehab team.

Added some gear to the home gym and have started getting more structured/targetted with the training I can do.

 

No Surgery is good, do you watch Knees over toes guy etc for rehab?

Yeh idol follow him. Working with a good physio/rehab team though so we will see how it goes. In some ways I wish it needed surgery, at least then I'd know exactly where I'm starting from. At the moment there's a lot of try this try that going on. Slowly getting a plan sorted though.

While knee rehab is ongoing and squats and deads are off the menu, along with pretty much all lower body work, I've been adding to the home gym set up.

Scored 4 x 25kg bumper plates at the weekend along with an industrial athletic half rack and spotter arms for FREE! 

The whole lot had been sitting outside for a long time. Plates were covered in mould, lichen and other crap as well as being very weather beaten.

Top pic is after a severe scrubbing with hot water and sugar soap, bottom pic is my attempt to spruce them up.

Wow what a find. I have a few weights at home that were also found by the road sides (70kg in plates) enjoy lifting even heavier now :P
