Haven't even thought of trying to do an unassisted pull-up yet. It's a very slow recovery, even with an excellent orthopedic surgeon and physical therapist.
Wow. Can't imagine how painful it must have been.

Couldn't imagine playing and getting hit with an injury like that. Especially playoff hockey.
