The cure!! Well...part of a cure for a bum Achilles. In 2015 and 2016 I struggled with Achilles tendinosis. For me, shockwave (aka EPAT) was the most beneficial treatment and this was the most beneficial exercise. Even though my Achilles is healthy now 🙌🏻, I still do this exercise 3x per week along with other eccentric exercises.
Eccentric heel drops on a leg press machine. 180 pounds, 2 sets of 10 with a straight leg and 2 sets of 10 with a bent knee. I work up from 90 pounds at the beginning of the year up to 250 pounds during the summer. Down with 1 leg, hold for a second or two, up with 2 legs (at the start of the video, I am working my right leg, dropping down with weight only on the right then using my left to help press up). Make sure you are dropping your heel past neutral.
Btw, I'm wearing the @newbalance 880 and working out at @rallysportboulder
Any other rehab exercises you want to see? #myfaves #thecure #achilles (song: Lady Gaga, The Cure)

Seattle Seahawks cornerback, Richard Sherman underwent success Achilles' tendon repair surgery last Wednesday.👌🏾 🏈 The achilles tendon is the largest and strongest tendon in the body, connecting the calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus muscles) to the heel bone (calcaneus). ✅Here’s an example of just how strong this tendon is. 10km run = Average time 50 minutes, Average cadence of 150. 150 x 50= 7500 steps. 7500/2= 3750 steps per leg. Achilles load= 4500N per step x 3750 steps = 16, 875, 000N. 1.68 Million Kgs per leg in total duration of the 10km run.‼️ Thankfully, most of the time our bodies cope with it 🙏🏾🔑🤓Injury is commonly found in athletes with quick and abrupt movements (runners,football, basketball, tennis players, etc.). Many injuries to the achilles tendon are caused by excess corticosteroids, certain antibiotics (Cipro-fluoroquinolone) or tendinosis/paratenonitis, which weaken the tendon.⛹🏾⛹🏾 A sudden force in the muscles can cause a strong contraction of the gastrocnemius (calf) muscle, putting the achilles tendon under additional stress. 😳 😭Achilles tendon injuries can be caused by muscle overuse, tight musculature, and biomechanical problems with the feet, including fallen arches (flat feet→ excessive pronation) 😰Resting, and non weight bearing rehab is a conservative treatment use in both nonrupture/ruptured injury. Stretching the calf muscles to prevent tightness, and strengthening the calf muscle eccentrically by performing calf raises are highly recommended.✅ The pathophysiology of the buildup to complete tendon rupture consists of collagen degeneration, fiber disorientation, and increased mucoid ground substance; however, no increase in inflammatory cells occurs. In healthy tendons, 95% of the collagen is type I. Degenerate tendons have less type I collagen and significantly more type III collagen. Surgical techniques are varied and usually involve reapproximation (rejoining) of the torn ends of the Achilles' tendon sometimes reinforced by the gastroc/soleus aponeurosis or plantaris tendon. (Shown in top right image. ↗️)Expected recovery time is 4-5 months in the case for Richard Sherman. Prayers up for a safe recovery🙏🏾🙏🏾 #KinectMD

'Name one hero who was happy.'

I considered. Heracles went mad and killed his family; Theseus lost his bride and father; Jason's children and new wife were murdered by his old; Bellerophon killed the Chimera but was crippled by the fall from Pegasus' back.

'You can't.' He was sitting up now, leaning forward.

'I can't.'

'I know. They never let you be famous and happy.' He lifted an eyebrow. 'I'll tell you a secret.'

'Tell me.' I loved it when he was like this.

'I'm going to be the first.' He took my palm and held it to his. 'Swear it.'

'Why me?'

'Because you're the reason.'

I finally picked up The Song of Achilles and it is just... wow. From the first page everything felt so ethereal and atmospheric. Greece in the age of heroes feels like a real place with all the intrigue of the mythology. And the way Miller writes is just slaying my existence. Achilles and Patroclus are such cinnamon roles. I can't. And I am just around a 100 pages or so in but it is just. SO. GOOD. Ugh. Will post a review once I am done with it.

First day back in the saddle and new wheels for motivation 🏋🏼. It's a start. It wasn't pretty, in fact it was freaking awful, but today was the first day I have thrown a bar around after surgery, and it's defo a step in the right direction. A massive 40kg snatch....think I still have time to make the IWF world champs next week?! 🤣 Achilles still hurts like hell, range is poor, proprioception is shot, but got to start re-tuning those motor patterns. Movement variability is inherent to performance, but injury/surgery represent the biggest insult to accentuate the band width of variability! Hence I looked like a new born horse on ice skates doing my empty bar snatch today!! 🐴⛸ Gotta get back at it and start narrowing that magnitude of variability. It's a long road but was nice to take the first step today. #achilles #weightlifting #surgery #rehab #reebok #legacylifter #ufcpi #gonnabesoretomorrow #babysteps #snatch #IWF

"Myrmidons! My brothers of the sword! I would rather fight beside you than any army of thousands! Let no man forget how menacing we are, we are lions! Do you know what's waiting beyond that beach? Immortality! Take it! It's yours!" - Achilles
