p.s. - I just remembered you said this - about the "off your feet for 12 weeks thing" - wtf?!! Not only is that unrealistic for anyone, all the rest of your muscles would atrophy. (Actually atrophy begins within 48 hours of disuse...)
My experience in treating athletes with p.f. is
- They always return to their sport - usually fairly quickly.
- They are HIGHLY motivated to comply with treatment.
- They never quit for 12 weeks. That's ridiculous advice.
sorry - just had to rant a little.
