 If you take Brett Tippie and put him near Yoan Barelli, there would be a physical reaction similar to a nuclear reactor that generates endless amounts of energy. World energy problem solved. You are welcome.

 Curious what surgery you're getting, Yoann. There's a new surgery for ACL that has dropped recovery time down to a couple of months instead of the usual 6 months or longer. Here is an article on it:

I only know about it because a friend's son just had it and will be returning to football in two months after the surgery, which is crazy fast.

 Glad to see you are doing well, and still doing videos. While your riding is fantastic, I also watched into the gnar for the personality, so this is like the next best thing. Speedy recovery!

 I'm really impressed by his positive attitude. I was pretty devastated after my ACL tear. Hardest time was until I got the diagnosis. It got better after and sprits were back high after surgery. Hang in there, it will take some time to heal up but you will be back on the bike pretty quickly!

 I take it as a learning experience. I've already experienced some really big lows and some good ups like in this video, and I'm learning a lot about my body. looking forward to have the surgery and learn more about dealing with pain and rehab haha !! I'll share it with you guys Smile

 If he can maintain that enthusiasm for the gym he might become a body builder by the time his knee is healed.

 I understood there is a TPF too..? Impossible then to do such a workout. Ok, so no TPF probably. Good luck!

 I did: ACL complete tear, Meniscus pretty f*cked (I can feel it making some scraplrrrrrscrapppppl noises when I extend my leg with pressure on it, and also painful), small fractures on the tibia plateau and the head of the femur (somehow I don't feel anything from those) and a degree 1 tear of the MCL ligament. I can walk fine today. the the all thing is super weak it's crazy, I'm really careful tho. Thank you for the support !!

 Respect for this fitness!

If his knee is now unfit the rest is surely 200% above my fitness Big Grin

 Also: respect for the full hang ring pullup technique.

 Hah. Spoke too soon. Kipping by round 10... but 10 rounds of that workout is nutty, so gotta cut some slack.
  • + 4
 @Hogfly: I started strict pull-ups but at the round 7 I could only do 3 hahaha !! so I switched to kipping Wink
