After enduring a complete shoulder replacement a few months ago, it’s been a relentless schedule of rehab for Hope Solo.
Clearly, things are paying off.
Toward the end of January, Hope posted two videos to Instagram to update fans on her progress. The first showed her using a lat pulldown machine, displayed what she described as the most flexibility she has had in years.
Just days later, Hope posted a video of her working out with her longtime goalkeeping trainer, Ben Dragavon.

Thanks @dragavontrainingmethods — I'm privileged to work with such a great coach and person. The two don't always go hand in hand! ・・・ #GKcomplete Movement: preparation of direction change. Controlling center of mass and not allowing it to control you @hopesolo #gkcomplete #gymANDfield #goalkeeper #goalkeepertraining #goat #movementefficiency
While Hope’s playing future remains underdetermined as of yet, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the world’s best goalkeeper will eventually be back.
