So I was once in a deep period in my life where I ate almost no calories, Fapped everyday all day, and the calories I did eat were sugar and horrible food while I spent hours doing cardio... I was depressed... Id squat too much weight with horrible form and flat feet, and my knees hurt for weeks.... I felt.... Slow.. I remember before sparring putting on Shinpads, how heavy my knees felt. I was sparring a little and my partner took my down which wasn't even a hard take down and my Leg somehow twisted or extended and I felt a pain... I was fine after but Something was off. Turns out I tore my Acl ? The next day it was swollen... I held off surgery for the summer and had no real issues. I got in some street fights and won.. I was pretty careful with it but I could still pivot and kick if I turned my whole knee and leg and twarked my body together. But I stayed pretty flat footed when punching just for safety... Just got Surgery about 22 weeks ago and got a Patella Graft. Im pretty much squatting with good form btw which is very important guys.. Also dont let your knees cave in. Have your feet facing outwards a little and work on your arch when walking. Is there anyway I can compete in MMA and not re-injure myself and come back stronger this time around? Im 21 And similar stories or personal experiences?
