day 937 – pistol unlocked

image

quads were feeling so jelly i could’ve sworn i wouldn’t be able to do any physio exercises this morning. kin being his own self, urged me to get things done. he, who introduced pistols in my life, has been egging me on to get it down for the past year. my dominant side got it within the first month but severe imbalances made my weak side impossible. kin demanded it again today and i hastily tried, not expecting to come close just like my past nine hundred failed attempts. lo and behold, i went all the way down and all the way up and before i knew it, i had just completed my first ever pistol squat on what i call my broken left. this is a significant milestone because it’s something i’ve been working towards for so long. it’s truly a testament to prove that hardwork, belief and determination really does pay off. thank you for pushing me and never settling for less

day 566 – physio at his best

image

physio had his radar on me the entire morning and went crazy today pushing me hard and maxing out my leg. said he was on a mission to push my left leg to match the other because he’s simply not satisfied that i am settling. upon hearing that, my kinesiologist was on my back because physio faulted him for not working me hard enough. physio also discussed my mri report to confirm results came back negative. the good news is nothing broken and nothing torn, the not so good news is he has the green light to hurt me in any possible way to fix whatever is wrong with me

day 552 – vmo

image

no secret what is the underlying issue that i try to slip through under the radar all these years. i knew it was only a matter of time until muscle imbalance catches up to me. today, physio finally forced it upon me to work my vmo using the muscle stimulator and i am already not fond of that device. both kinesiologist and physio flat out said it’s a tortuous process where the machine would cause a lot of painful contractions but said that i am forced to do it for as long as it needs to catch up. its a brutal process, but it must be done because he’s not going to let me off the hook anymore
