My knee and achilles have been bothering me for a couple months now. It all happened when I did too many double unders followed by a little weirdness while front squatting. My calves tightened up and now anytime I squat heavy I wake up the following with achilles pain and a bit of knee junk. I took last week off and have committed to doing just bodyweight movement for one month at least in hopes that it will rehab me a smidge. I have also been wanting to devote more time to gymnastics type stuff so this will allow for that too. I talk to Dan aka "Kalosthenos" from The Bar Union pretty frequently and he has also been an inspiration on this journey...that guy is a beast! The program I will be doing is from Zach Evan Esch of Underground Strength Nation and it's legit. Currenlty I am at 15 pull ups, 1 weak ass excuse for a muscle up, 25 push ups and I can hold a handstand against a wall for 1 minute. I am hoping to get 20 pull ups (overhand grip), 50 push ups and a headstand push up by this time next month. If I do it will be a very merry christmas for me. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
