10 months post op can i push on now
« on: April 14, 2009, 04:56:14 PM »
I have made it to the 10 month stage of my rehabilitation from an acl hamstring (autograft), lateral collateral and posterolateral corner reconstruction of my right knee. I was wandering which weightlifting exercises can I do now,and can i up the weight and intensity without it stressing the graft, as I can now run for 10 minutes with no problem or pain or swelling after, I have not done deadlifts for 10 months, and have only have been doing only 40 kilo squats up until now. I really want to kick on, surely by now the graft has healed and the fixations are attached to the bone by now. So would it be safe to now progressively work up to a heavy weight in the squat (more than 80 kilos), and start to do deadlift exercises from 10 months onwards without any risk of stretching or stressing the graft.

I dont get much feedback from my surgeon or physical therapists does anyone have anyone have any advice.

thanks a lot danny
