Hey guys, i have a few goals that i want/need to make. I have spent a good amount of time just perusing the threads here over the past couple years but i don;t think i've seen quite what i'm looking for. I want to 1) drop from 240-245 down to 190 by Nov. and i want to get my legs back up to snuff after multiple injuries. Background: I wrestle in college (Fr.). I have undergone 2 knee surgeries in since last July and have not been able to lift legs since Feb. 2006. I tore the articular cartilage on the Femur and had plica issues in June, and recently I tore the articular cartilage in two more places and required micro-fracture in the same knee. I also broke my ankle in Feb. pushing back knee surgery until 2 weeks ago. I also found out that i'm not very competitive with my middle weight (245) and bad knees in the college hwt scene, so i decided to drop to 197 before i hurt the knee. Obviously my weight is up to 245 again since exercise has been non-existant since Feb. Goals: -Rehab the knees back up to snuff -Get leg muscle back up -Cut to 197 Problem: I've always been a bulker so its a little foreign to me what to do in order to try and get my legs back up in a bulk, yet cut overall down to 197. Ideas: -Severe diet is order, lots of salad, chicken breast, and oatmeal -buy a new bike and RIDE Help me, i'm kind of lost as to how to go about this, its a goofy predicament. Thank you very much for any help you can give me, i know the basics, but i need some things that will help me specifically. Thank you again. And if i'm being a tard, ignore this or preferably leave me something saying so. Questions are always welcome.
