How to Train Pre Surgery

If you have a surgery coming up, you don’t have to sacrifice your training, according to Brute Strength’s Director of Injury Management and founder of Active Life RX, Dr. Sean Pastuch. Instead, keep the date in mind and change your mindset as if you’re training for the procedure.

That includes accepting your injury. Example: If you’re having rotator cuff surgery, then you can stick to your Brute programming as long as you understand you won’t be sticking to the shoulder work at the capacity listed.
