    eccentric calf exercises,. pretty much healed my Achilles injury

    get a step or box,. start out like you would at the top of a calf raise and lower down SLOWLY(basically a reverse calf raise),
    so the muscle in contracting eccentrically, does wonders for strength and promotes blood flow to the achilles

    Thanks Pal,

    I will try this, just can't wait to start playing again. It will help me lose some fat that I've put on since I been told not to train and play.
