Well, I am two weeks post surgery now, and my physical therapy consists mainly of stretches that restore the range of motion of my knees and floor exercises that are disturbingly reminiscent of the "Jane Fonda Workout" tapes. (I warned my physical therapist that if she didn't get me into something more "substantial" pretty soon, I was coming to my next session in brightly colored spandex, leg warmers, a head band, and carrying a boom box that was blaring '80's music) She promised me things would get better this week.

For those of you who know anything about or have had this procedure, I am progressing well. I can already fully straighten my leg (0 degrees) and I was told two days after my surgery that the goal was to get me bending my leg to 90 degrees by the two week mark. That day (2 days post op) I got it to 115 degrees and I am now at 130 degrees. I'm still pretty helpless, but I have hope that I will be "back in the game" in record time. Crossfit is evidently good "prehab" for ACL surgery.

Yes, the better shape you are in pre-surgery the quicker recovery is.
