Week 6.5: Rehab

I believe in rehabbing when I’m pain-free. It serves two purposes: promote healing and improve mobility. At the same time, I continue exercising the body parts that don’t hurt.

My home-based rehab consists of Isometric exercises where I “hold the muscle in a fixed position for a set duration of time”. Since I’m rehabbing my knee, I do isometric squats with unweighted straight leg deadlifts thrown in for good measure.

It’s hard to do but painless. And that’s what I need to keep in shape.

Bone Dry Days: 17 (since 12 Feb)
Bet Days: 15/60 (since 14 Feb)
