Consult experts

It is highly recommended to undergo an assessment before starting any physical activities or restarting weightlifting activities after getting post-surgery physiotherapy to ensure it is safe to proceed.

Pace yourself

Discipline and moderation are to prevent injury. As you start increasing the difficulty of your routine, observe how your body feels after going through certain motions. In some cases, mild pain or discomfort can be expected but if it persists after a few repetitions, stop the activity and re-assess how you feel.

Use proper technique and equipment
