<p>You know, the simple warmups are usually the best. You don't have to get too fancy with the stretches, but just make sure that all of the muscles you're going to use are warm.</p>
<p>Stick with simple options like:</p>
<p>-Hamstring stretches</p>
<p>-Calf stretches</p>
<p>-Thigh stretches</p>
<p>-Lower back stretches</p>
<p>Roll your ankles all around, stretch those arms and shoulders, and just get your body loose by jumping rope for a few minutes. You'll find that you don't have to spend too much time warming up - just enough to get the blood flowing to your muscles.</p>

5 days post op ACL surgery - strange horrible pain
By dadoody

Posted: Jul 16, 2018
I'm 12 years post op, but I remember that pain. I stretched out the percocet and vicodin for about 1 or 1.5 weeks I think. It prevented pain, but I couldn't poop for a week.  Maybe they can ...
