    Hi Dan,

    Dr. Rockett makes mention of a guide you two were working on back in 2013

    Dan Pope and I are working on a rehab protocol for people after shoulder surgery and after PT is done to help them get back to CrossFitting.

    Did you ever publish this or make it available. I had shoulder surgery 10 weeks ago and would like to start planning my training post PT and rehab.

    Thanks!

      Haha, hey Israel. We’re actually still working on it! Dave Tilley and myself are making an advanced shoulder rehab concept product and I’m currently writing a general shoulder rehab book both of which should be released this year. Sorry for the delay.
