I went to Merv as a last resort after having a second operation on the same knee. The first being an ACL repair in 2014, second was an arthroscopy in early 2019 which discovered fairly serious structural damage. When we first started it was August/September 2019, and it is now April 2020. I was a few months post op, but my progress had really stalled. In my initial consultation I struggled to quarter squat 60kg. We worked on what range of motion I had and included a lot of single leg exercises over the following months. As my strength grew with a limited range of motion and my knee became more stable we worked on different plans and working in more power work and started introducing some running. After not being able to run for a number of years without having days of swelling I now run three days a week. My 1rm squat is around 200kg with a full range of motion and my 1rm deadlift is 240. I’ve also lost around 25 kg since going to Merv. I couldn’t speak more highly of his methods, he’s an absolute genius in my eyes who I owe a great debt to. He’s given me my life back.
