/ Training Tips Following Knee Surgery
If anyone has gone through this, I'd be grateful for some advice.
I`m not sure you should take this as advice but I was campusing two days after mine so fingerboarding/pullups could be OK during recovery. I don`t remember having to wait too long before climbing again although I can remember being tentative.
Have they given you an estimate for how long you'll be out of action?
I did my first (tentative) hill walk 2 weeks after my op, and was winter climbing 3 weeks after that.
I never had much upper body strength to lose, but my leg strength didn't really suffer. Just make sure you ditch the crutches as soon as the surgeon says you can (I was lucky and never needed any).
I do have exo bands finger boards weights and a TRX trainer at my disposal so I hope they can do the trick while a
Many thanks for the advice.
You'll have loads of Physio to do on your leg anyway. But I would advise you to get your legs really strong before going back to the climbing wall. After my first op I went back to indoor stuff after 6 weeks. 3 months later I had another op. you feel it move differently. Second time I waited 10 weeks and took it nice and easy on the grades for 4 weeks. Still doing the strength training on the knee.
Here is a blog I did during rehab see if it helps.
Patience is the key though.
