Also, I would really encourage you to add in the Thrower's Ten to your weight lifting regimen to prevent future injuries.

You also might be interested in looking at this site to modify your current off court training. The rotational movements of the core on the legs are not ones that are targeted by most weight lifters. By incorporating more of the exercises like lunges, and the use of medicine balls, you can help prevent back, hip and knee injuries that seem to crop up in too many players.

Thanks, yea I'm going to rest. If you saw me, I "Look" in great, well good shape, but it's like I'm "Mr. Potatoe Head", one thing falling off at a time. Trust me I'm no whiner, but I've been on pain killers out of necessity on and off for 8 months, feel like I'm 90!
