I recently had anterior hip replacement surgery this past June, I have been preparing and training to powerlift at some local meets. I had surgery on my left hip and presently have no restrictions. My left leg is considerably weaker but I feel I can regain good strength and lifts, do you have any thoughts on how to proceed to bring my left leg strength up. Thanks a lot

I'm dealing with patellar tendon reattachment surgery from 8/30/14. I was cleared tp start lifting 12 weeks post surgery.
I'm doing rehab exercises for the specific area which I'm sure they had you do. With my weights I've been adding in some extra left quad work, app 3 sets of 10 -15 reps of lunges, split squats , or band leg extensions.
I started light with my unilateral work, the bar for safety squats and 225 on the deadlift .
Because of the big disparity between the left leg, the surgical leg, and my right leg I wanted to allow the left to catch up,
After app 6 weeks I'm ready to add in more left leg work and to go to 4 days a week. My plan is to get to normal levels in app 3 - 4 more months.
I'd follow a similar plan, start light to keep form solid, build up incrementally maintaining form, and do it over 4 - 6 months.
