I wish you well in your rehab. Having undergone 7 knee surgeries to my R knee over a 35 year period after a major accident on Denali in 1978 I have a lot of experience coming back from knee surgeries. The rehab is critical to a good outcome. Do not leave it up to your physical therapist. You have to be on this every day and often multiple times a day to ensure that your knee gets as healthy a possible. You will always have a ‘bad’ knee. The trick is having the strength to be able to compensate for the loss of functionality that you will experience. If you’re in Chamonix and seeing Neil then you are in good hands. Once you are cleared by your PT to begin a strength training program we can help with that process. Myself and coach Carolyn Parker can help with a program designed to your specific needs. It will be one initially based on increasing strength since that will be key to your long term success. We can provide this either with a Custom plan or with personal coaching.
Be advised that Steve and I have struggled for years to find the perfect solution for guides. Fitting training into a guide’s life is challenging to say the least. We’ve developed some compromised solutions that so far have worked well for the several guides we’ve tested them on. But, each guide’s situation is a bit different.
When you are ready please get in touch and we can discuss the best way forward for you.
