BTW he's obviously doing this in a Physical Therapist's office, so it's not like he's fucking around in a bedroom somewhere. After an injury like that he's going to be doing a lot work with a PT - its their job to help people recover and regain range of motion/form/function after an injury.

Edit: I'm pointing this out so people don't freak out that he's doing too much too soon or not doing enough. PT know what they are doing; they're very well educated professionals that do amazing things with their patients.

A GOOD PT is very demanding of their patient and pushes them to make progress quickly, it seems like that's important for best outcome. I worked at a facility that had an entire kitchen and the front half of a car in the PT wing, and people who had broken hips were always out there learning to get in and out of the car, people with shoulder injuries were relearning how to get things off of shelves and all that normal day to day stuff. Wasn't long after surgery, and it wasn't easy. Every day I saw people physically wanting to quit when their minds were determined not to. Huge respect to Anderson. I have no doubt that few people would be this far along in the recovery process so soon.
