Tore my hamstring yesterday, its all bruised and I can't really walk today. Going to follow the Starr rehab protocol with squats and deadlifts and lots of gentle stretching - get back on this program in a bit hopefully. Greg - any advice on olympic weightlifting specific rehab?

Went in reverse direction because I thought it would be easier to warm up to the FS first and the snatch last. Does this make any difference? FS: 220.5# C&J: 195# snatch: 145# Got some valuable instruction from Fred Lowe regarding my first pull on my snatch today. All lifts at least 90%, although debatable on the "technically well" aspect. stiff-legged DL: 195#, 215#, 235#, 245#, 255# Is there a general percentage this should be in relation to DL max? By the way, having not done regular DLs in weeks seems to make these feel heavy at any weight.

Snatch-155# (a bit above 90%) C&J-205# (around 93%) Fr.Squat-220# (90%) Conditioning: 3 rounds; 1 rope ascend (15') 3 muscle ups 5 deadlifts (275#) 7 broad jumps (6') 5:07 Had to go 5 days straight again this week and for some unexplainable reason I turned up the conditioning this week. Despite feeling tired, my lifts felt solid and I managed to hit 90% or above. (Not hard to do when you lift baby weight)

Snatch: 85 C+J: 110 FS: 120 SLD: 80 I think I could have gone higher in the deadlifts but decided to stay with what I was at.

CW - Kelly probably has good rehab advice. You might also want to try finding a Graston practitioner to work on it - I've seen some pretty amazing recoveries from hamstring tears with that.
