hey guys, i am scheduled for slap tear surgery on my left shoulder and was wondering what type of post therapy training i should do to ease back into things, the doctor suggested a 6-8 week period of just rehab, after 3 weeks of remaining immobile. any suggestions for either the rehab period or post rehab training and diet wise are greatly appreciated/ thanks


Won't the Doctor order Physical Therapy for you?

That would be the first thing.

I had two people just recently come in and I worked with them WHILE they were receiving PT.

Fortunately, the Physical Therapist recognized that we were exceeding the expectations and released the athletes to my care exclusively. I would NOT however, touch them without that initial co existence of 5-8 weeks with the PT.

Your nutritional plan should run parallel with your goals regardless of what you can and can not do.

You're trying to recoup from a shoulder trauma. No difference than if you were trying to build it up to play in the NFL. Just the intensity of the exercise. Diet should be in line with that means.
