high-rep, low-weight rehab

Post by dead man walking » Tue Jun 07, 2016 7:27 pm

was it b.d. who said you can fix troubled shoulders with high rep presses using low weights? bill starr recommended high-rep broomstick good mornings for a fuct back.

so how high is high for reps? and how low is low for weights?

i'm a little tired of the nagging pains. maybe i'll come back as a sensible athlete in my next life. until then, i'm curious if there's a remedy in this one.

You can fix a lot of things that way.

For me it was very light clubbell rotations shield cast I think it's called...30-250 reps in sets of 20-50.

My friend, a 62 year old powerlifter who has moved to deadlift only after many injuries and leukemia, had a hip replacement 2 years ago. He also pulls sumo so he earned his bad hip. i on the other hand unfairly have been afflicted with my hip issues even pulling conventional like a real 'merican. Anyway, he had the posterior approach which goes through glute and piriformis and lots of other tissue. Not cutting but a lot more tissue impact than the anterior approach i am getting. We talked this past weekend and he showed me his training log, Two weeks post surgery he started high box squatting to a bench at 55lbs. 4 sets of 10. Added 5-10 lbs and did two workouts a week. 6 weeks post surgery he started conventional DL and some TBDL. Started around 135 for sets of 10. One dl workout a week.

So i will let you know how the rehab goes as that is my rough plan. 6 weeks for bone to attach fully to Bionic Components.
