    Wondered where you had been (seriously) as I hadn't seen you around.

    Honestly, it was kind of nice reading people help out and give advice on these boards without purposefully being a d-bag about it. But, now that he's back and seeing how he responds to people, I would expect nothing less coming from a person like him

Rehab is more for people that have not done any muscle building and due to the surgery need to strengthen the surrounding area. I as well as many of us do not fit that bill. However other types of therapy will be important such as Stim/Ultrasound/Vasocompression...etc. as well as deep therapy to break up the surrounding muscle guarding. I have my own therapy machines thanks to a family member who does Rehab for the NHL. My issues are just the bone shaving at this point as its still sore to the touch.

      You have your own TENS unit, I take it? Never liked the thing myself.

        A TENS unit is different than a stim machine. I have both but a 9 volt battery powered Tens unit is more for blocking pain and its like taking an icepick to Mount Rushmore in comparision to a plug in Stim machine.

        Its old but very powerful and unlike the newer units that have a shut off feature once it goes past a certain point to avoid tearing the muscle off the bone, this one does not.

          Wait a minute, I want an invite, too. I want to see it. lol

          Tip: That isn't "damage" as much as that is just us old guys' normal knees. It takes me longer to warm up my knees than it does to train quads. I can't imagine the damage I have in there and, quite frankly, I probably don't want to know.

            Have you tried deep tissue massage on ur quads?

            they can really release a ton of tension that in turn causes knee pain..

              Well I am old and you are pretty smart so...................lol... Its actually two injuries days apart and it started when I missed the last step coming up my front steps with two gallons of water in each hand and I landed on my knee and went face down into the door. Thats the impaction injury on the Anteromedial Femoral Condyle which most likely was the catalyst to the tearing of the medial horn. It was pretty funny at first but days later all I did was shuffle under the hack squat pads and BINGO!

                        i think, that if you deplete well and then eat complex carbs, because your body wants carbs alot it will overract and you will be able to push the stores harder, and the complex carbs make insulin react less of course meaning you can push more carbs into the muscular glucose store. for that reason, and that i am carb sensitive with simple carbs particularly, i voted for complex. what did u decide to do in the end this week Chad?

                              If you use complex carbs through your diet then simply increase the amount.

                              If you refeed each week using simple carbs then use the same carbs. Know how long it takes for your body to expel the water and look your best for pre-judging.

                              I like this answer. I think people should do a test run before competition day.
