    Determined to recover and checking in. I'm leaving for physio in fifteen minutes and taking an hour out of my morning tomorrow to spin and do chin ups. How's the pool Ike?

    At the gym with a cold trying to beat my squat max. Wasn't strong enough to maintain form and rotational force was applied to my knee joint.

    Damn, I always thought squatting was safe.

    It still is. There's inherent risk to any physical activity, but less so in squatting than in many others. I had too much weight on my back for my condition and no spotter that day.

    Sorry man. Unfortunately, we all have our athletic expiration dates. I hope I'm wrong, but I figure I have a couple more years left to do BJJ. My neck and back aren't feeling so great anymore after a few decades of punishment and I hurt significantly (not in a good muscle soreness way either) after training.

    I've seen people go a few different ways when facing the end of their martial arts/athletic careers depending on their circumstances. Some switch arts, cut way down on the training in terms of frequency or intensity, and others find a peripheral way to be involved (coach, do administrative things, etc.). For me, I'll probably make a clean break. The intensity and exertion has always been the fun part and anything less will just remind me of what I'm not doing.

    At that point, I'll just have to find something else to fill my time with. I probably should be devoting more time to career development and getting some professional certifications. The wife and I have talked about designing and building a house somewhere a bit more rural.

    Just curious.
    I was sparring, full contact stick fighting. Every range from stick to grapling. I was about a minute into a round, mostly staying on the outside. But I came in to close and had to do a roofblock to avoid a stick to the head, my natural tendency after a roof block is to clench. So I clenched and then got a takedown ending in the half mount. The guy on the bottom put me in Eddie Bravo's "lockdown". But he wasn't trying to get out of it. I should have been content to stay there and do strikes, but I tried to move to the mount. My right leg was lockeddown around the calf. So I moved to a kind of knee on belly position, which I have used in the past. It puts a lot of pressure on your rib cage so usually you release the lockdown position and try to scramble into full guard. So I did that, but he bridged a little bit. So I leaned to the right to keep from being swept. As I did that I twisted my leg a little more than I should and I heard a loud POP! Then lost strength in my leg. The result was fully torn ACL and meniscus. I got an ACL reconstruction and 2/3rds of my meniscus taken out. Also ended with a defect in my medial femoral condyle. My work was done at the Andrews Institute.

    Now I have also develped Plantar Fasciitis in my foot on the other leg. Fun!

    Feel your pain. I've been out of training for 3 months with a ruptured disk with no sign of recovery. Haven't been good company to be around.

    That's one of the big downers regarding lengthy injuries.

    One can really get pissed at oneself--and sometimes unintentionally at others. This happens when one has time to stew. Forced-leisure sucks beyond belief, particularly when imposed on active individuals.

    Anyone in this position had best not give him- or herself that kind of time. People who are recovering need to find something (even something brand-new) to learn, do, or otherwise occupy the hours. Anything at all which doesn't affect the healing process, but allows one to think of something other than one's condition.

    It's a matter of mental health as well as physical health and--as we all know--the two are very much interlinked.

    Good advice. Would have been great to read it before my injury.

    My 5 year relationship fell apart on the weekend. I'd say my depressed state probably had a lot to so with it.
