When you sustain a torn biceps tendon, the prognosis isn't typically rosy. You're usually looking at a full six months of rehab before you regain previous levels of function and strength.
A mere 10 weeks out from surgery to repair his torn biceps tendon, TRX Creator Randy Hetrick took his rightful place among his team at the TRX Training Center in San Francisco for the noon staff workout.
A full two months ahead of the predicted schedule, Randy easily kept pace with the class, busting out some TRX Biceps Curls and feeling confident about his ability to take his fitness to a new heights.
The staff at Presidio Sports & Medicine were also thrilled with Randy's rapid recovery. Physical Therapy Aide Jennifer Tiu said Randy had the shortest rehab for this specific injury she had seen yet, which was due in large part to his use of the TRX to first increase his range of motion and then to slowly move toward more weight-bearing exercises as he progressed in his rehab.
"It would be a mistake not to have the TRX in the clinic," says Erica Moody, Clinical Director at Presidio Sports & Medicine. "On the rehab side, it's been so sucucessful; it's really a no-brainer."
The sky's the limit when it comes to the potential of the TRX in the sports med/rehabilitative world, as experienced firsthand by Randy. "I definitely look at the rehabilitative piece of our business differently now because I've seen the power of the TRX for this space," says Randy.
Before the above video was shot, Randy and the TRX Production team shot footage for Randy's Get with the Movement video. Watching it, you'd never suspect he'd only recently discarded his arm sling.
