  1. Way to go, that is impressive! Don’t stop there though, keep working hard.

  2. But maybe DON’T hurry to “do as many 1-leg heel raises as you can” because that’s what got me in trouble (8 yrs ago, first ATR) and set my rehab back a month.

  3. any pain or side effects?
    how many rises?
    full raise or how high?

  4. I can do about 2. I didnt measure it though. It was about halfway up. I didnt have any side effects. It just felt like the final set from weight lifting if that is an accurate way to describe it. I wanna use the pool for exercises but I hasn’t opened yet.

  5. I never made it into the water during either ATR rehab, but I have no hesitation in echoing the raves and “good vibes” and recommendations for in-water exercise coming from Gunner and the others who’ve done it.

    It sounds like a brilliant way — probably the best way unless you can visit the Moon or Mars! — to do partial-weight exercises, measure your progress in rebuilding strength, and psychologically simulate “normal”, all at the same time.
