Hello Mr.sweet, I'm an aspiring special forces soldier and I have a few questions regarding preparation and training. I've accumulated a good amount of injuries the past couple years and was wondering what I should do to train around these injuries and how long i I should wait before shipping out. I have a grade 3 ac separation in my left shoulder I got a year ago in addition to a torn labrum I had surgery on in February. Also I had a meniscus root repair last June and recently tore some of the cartilage under my knee. I've been rehabbing both shoulders for awhile but I'm not all the way there yet. My knee is kind of in this weird spot where running and lifting doesn't bother it but just standing on it for a couple hours will make it swell up. My doctor told me that if it doesn't get better soon I could be looking at another surgery to take out the damaged cartilage. I'm worried this will screw me at meps as I don't see myself getting cleared for 3 surgeries. Training wise I've been running and lifting 4-5 days a week. In the gym I'm transition from bodybuilding style workouts to workouts more based around pushing and pulling and with an emphasis on high reps. Should I continue training and rehabbing until my shoulders and knee are good then shoot for my contract?
