Single calf raises?

November 16th, 2013

So…again I’ve been offline, but have been making progress!  I am just over 6 months out from injury.  I am walking at 3.5 mph on the treadmill doing some light stair stepping and I actually got back to a Barre class this week.

I still have the slight defect (indentation) right below the tear.  Just a reminder….I did not have surgery.  I’ve heard that it takes time, sometimes up to a year or more, to regain full strength in your calf muscle.  I’m just wondering…when were you able to do a single calf raise?

I can do them with both legs, and for the eccentric contraction, I can do them with my injured leg.  It’s just that I cannot do a single calf raise with the injured leg holding all of my weight.

I just want to hear that I’m in the norm… :). I hope everyone is doing well with their recoveries!
