Been injured for a while now, string of bad luck, first cracked my eyesocket, then pulled muscle in my leg, and then picked up a knee injury, not bad for a 17 year old lol. All in all haven’t played for 2 years.
At the moment my knee injury is caused by a weak VMO and muscle imbalance pulling my knee cap out of position, been doing physio for 3 weeks now, getting a lot better, managed to do my first good lifting session yesterday but my legs are pretty weak as it’s the first real training I’ve done for a long time.
Would like to take rugby to a high level, was due to do a trail for the London Wasps academy before I was injured a few years ago. Want to play as an openside flanker, though I’ve never played there before, more experience as a wing/centre.
Will be following Rippletoe’s Starting Strength, pretty much a complete noob to lifting, so I will wait a while before I add in any other training, won’t be cleared to run by the physio for a few weeks anyway (Haven't run for over 8 months lol).
On with the show!
