I ruptured my pec tendon over Christmas break (Merry Christmas). I’ve seen an orthopedic surgeon and will get an MRI next week. If the doc feels that the tear is worth repairing (extent of the tear, if the tendon is attached to the muscle), he wants to have the surgery in the next two weeks. I’ll be immobilized in a sling for 4-6 weeks. I don’t yet know how much I’ll be able to do in the weeks after the surgery, but I’m sure it won’t be a ton (maybe walks, some lower body work, left arm work, etc.)
I’m thinking about following the Velocity Diet minus the stimulants and minus the Plazma until I’m out of the sling and able to train harder. So, I’d have the Metabolic Drive shakes and the health meal during the week.
I’m worried about those weeks in the sling. I am wired to pack on the pounds if I’m not training regularly, and I thought the Velocity diet might be a good choice to help me keep my weight in check. However, I wonder if the restricted calories of the diet would hamper my recovery.
Thanks in advance.
