Hello Masters. Two weeks from today I'm having another total knee replacement. Yesterday was my pre admission testing which went extremely well. Height/weight (6'2" 200lbs) is good for a 57yr old guy, blood pressure 118 over 78, and I do feel great other than left knee discomfort from the grinding bone on bone. Since January this year I've finally stuck with 4 days of Simple and Sinister goals to strengthen my body in preparation of the up coming major set back. My current swings are 100 one handed 24kg, and 5 each side 20kg get-ups. Sometimes I mix it up with two handed 100 32kg. I can do a 24kg right side TGU, but no way on left side due to bad knee. Plus my right leg is stronger and a tad larger thanks to the arthritis and minimum strength from the left knee down. But overall strength is decent I suppose. Oh, and sometimes double 16kg presses then into a squat 15x using the ladder principle if my knee starts to bother me. After my surgery when my walking improves and I start out patient physical therapy, I'll start adding some light swings and goblet squats. Of course all hinges on a successful no complication surgery. But my goals are set to get back "into the swing of things" per say as soon as possible. Since I'll be sitting a lot at first, I've already placed two 12kg KB's into the kitchen where I can sit on a solid oak chair and practice presses. So yes I've set goals for myself a head of time. Time heals all wounds....... I know I don't contribute much on the forums, but I'm here daily reading and learning which has improved me physically, mentally, and my overall well being. Thank you. My goal is to return to S&S programimg as soon as possible. Then attend a day Kettlebell Course, or hook up with SFG instructor to maximize my overall strength goals. I'll keep you posted on how well things go. Best to all!
