Superior Morgul Classic and embracing Girevoy Sport (GS)

With the whole avulsion fracture on my left tibia I cannot squat for some time but have discovered that doing the GS (Girevoy Sport) lifts do not bother it at all and even feel therapeutic on the knee.  This means I am throwing my hat back into the kettlebell sport ring (while still doing accessory barbell lifts).  Started the GS program today for the snatch and long cycle (clean and jerk).
