Talking Brand new to this forum... from GA

My names Philip.

I'm recently tore my acl in my knee, I need to have ACL reconstruction but dont have the 5k to get it done right now. So i have just been lifting hard and working on saving up.

I'm right at 5'11" and weigh in at 205 pounds

Lifts
Bench-3x225x10

Been on a good deal of forums. found this forum in google - >Took a look around and LOVED it. There is an incredible amount of information on training here, which is exactly what I wanted. Going to get a journal started by next week I believe.

Goals are 1-Strength and 2- Size. Yes in that order. I don't have to worry about my weight, I always stay in good shape.

Welcome to the forum!

Oh man, I hope you save the money quickly. I have had both of my ACLs torn and repaired (L tear 1992 fixed 1994 R tear 1993 fixed 2010). It is not fun to deal with and I hope you can get it resolved.

Welcome!

Same here man. I had my surgery in August on my left knee, tore the right one 10 years ago. It's been a journey back for sure, hope you get the surgery soon and if you want some post-op advice when the time comes feel free to PM me.
