This was my first proper workout since surgery. I've only really been stretching, doing leg raises and swimming until now. The week off was nice but I'm getting anxious to start lifting again. Still have another few weeks to go until I can do any leg work but upper body/core stuff should do for now.

Started on some light jogging/running today to get the knee back to sporting duties.

Foamrolling/Static Stretching x 15 mins

20kg KB Walk x 10 mins

Jog x 10 mins

Ran around with a soccer ball for a while, took some shots, practiced free kicks etc.

High/Medium Intensity Interval Circuit:

6 x Walk 20s/Sprint 8s/Jog12s punctuated by 15 x 16kg KB Swings/12 Jack-knife Sit ups (alternating between)

Stretch Down + light jog w/ soccer ball.

The KB swings absolutely demolished my hamstrings. Be wary.
