Just creeping on 14 weeks post op, recovery has been long but I couldn't be more satisfied with the progress. It's been an incredibly humbling experience but it's helped me revitalize my passion for coaching along with orientating my goals. For years I've watched videos, studied movements and programming, and dreamt of achieving that next level. But finding the balance between being a husband and father, coach, and then athlete has been some undertaking for me. With my head on right I can say I finally feel confident with the balance of all three. Devoting more time to my family, a better sense of unmatched quality in my coaching for all my athletes, and then a understanding of quality of volume within my training itself. I don't blow an 3-4 hours. The time I spend in the gym I give everything I can and emphasize my recovery, mobility, and overall care of my body. For the first time I've been pain free (relative minus the surgery) within my body for almost 5 months now. I don't remember the last time I have felt this good for this long, maybe 10 years ago before Active Duty. With that said, I'm more thankful for those who have been put in my life. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the members at my gym and their continued support, along wth my wife and my parents. My friends who train with me as they can is invaluable. But I am extremely fortunate to have been able to train at The Heppner Barn tonight. Although the workload is individual dependent the amount of drive you put in is more than amplified by the quality of individuals you're surrounded by. Tonight was by far a huge victory for me; I performed all my SHSPU UB and for the first time in 4 months, along with TnG PC pretty comfortably for my current state. Overall I'm very happy! Thanks again @jheppner66 for hosting and @ajkeeks8 @zcarchedi @enkerstetter and Olivia for the push, I'm more than appreciative for it!
