🎈STRENGTH BEFORE SURGERY SERIES, PART 5: OUTCOMES TO UNDERSTAND🎈
Many people opt for surgeries for the sole purpose of improving a BIOLOGICAL outcome (repaired rotator cuff, new ACL, wider spinal canal etc). Unfortunately, you can have surgery and improve a biological outcome without ever experiencing any improvements in pain, dysfunction or quality of life long-term. It’s important to understand that there are a myriad of outcomes that should be considered before opting for a non-guaranteed surgery. Read on...
1️⃣ Biological (mentioned above; repaired rotator cuff, widened spinal canal, new ACL, muscular strength etc.)
2️⃣ Functional (ability to throw a ball again, perform a push-up again etc.)
3️⃣ Psychological (quality of life, satisfaction etc.)
4️⃣ Social (ability to play with their kids again, participate in family events etc.)
5️⃣ Costs (discomfort, time, money etc.)
YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT: you can absolutely have surgery for a “brand new back”, and never ever experience improvements in functional, psychological or social outcomes long-term. Not to mention the recovery time, lost money and added discomfort you could potentially experience with surgery. “Well then what the hell was the point of opting for surgery then?!?😤”. Exactly my point...
🔥Something for you all to consider when debating between surgery vs. conservative, exercise-based interventions.
Felt great to get some weightlifting in today. It’s been a long time since we’ve done any heavy work overhead. I was worried going into these lifts because of a wrist injury over the summer that has kept me from any snatching for months, weak legs, and trying to push too hard on some deadlifts a couple weekends back and straining something in my back. I was overjoyed with all of these number. 5 lb PR on overhead squat and 10 lb PR on snatch balance. Both get better as I got heavier. Being that we only had 10 minutes for each and the clock didn’t stop, I was pretty fatigued on snatches, but still ecstatic to hit 90%, even if I did go up on my toes. Only miss of the day was at a 215 snatch. Stopped on my first pull first time around because I was so far onto my toes, then tried another but the pull was just too weak. Glad to still have a love for weightlifting after focusing so much on @CrossFit
Pretty sure I can overhead squat more than I can currently front squat or clean.
