I'm a newbie who has been reading this forum for quite a while. I think I have a chance of getting good answers here.
I tore the Gastrocnemius muscle in my leg two day's ago. That is the large muscle that connects to the Achilles tendon at the back of the calf.
What if any thing can be done to speed the recovery time?
I am a 49 year old fairly serious amatuer golfer. I started lifting two years ago in anticipation of turning 50 and playing in a number of senior amatuer tournaments this summer. I am 5'9" 165 lb with approx 12-13% body fat.
The muscle tore while I was coaching baseball. I was jogging slowly when it let go. Bad deal. I would greatly appreciate all the input I get on this.
