Jeremy Renner Shares Recovery Images
The 52-year-old Hawkeye actor, Jeremy Renner, continues to recover after his accident on January 1 that almost cost him his life. Renner recently shared on his Instagram account two clips showcasing his constant and demanding training routine, giving his followers an update on his progress.
“I Feel Like the Tin Man”
In the first clip, Renner can be seen using a pulley connected to a machine, while performing exercises to work the muscles of his legs. The actor also performs squats and pull-ups with the pulley. In the video, he says, “Although I feel like the Tin Man, because I need oil for all my new joints (hips, knees, ankles, tibia, etc), I am encouraged to continue after this warm-up.”
Several friends of Renner left encouraging comments on his post. Ryan Reynolds wrote, “That’s it!” and accompanied his message with heart-shaped emojis. Meanwhile, his Agents of SHIELD partner, Clark Gregg, commented, “Let’s go!”
Walking Step by Step
In the second clip, Renner is seen walking with the help of a walker and gaining confidence, muscle tone, and strength over the weeks. Under the post, he wrote, “My physiotherapist made this clip for reference and so I don’t forget. You can’t walk unless you take one step at a time!” Renner accompanied the clip with the hashtag #UnPieFrontDelOtro.
Renner’s Recovery Journey
Renner decided to keep his followers updated on his recovery journey after he was run over by a 7-ton snowplow, breaking more than 30 bones and undergoing multiple surgeries. Renner’s daughter, Ava Berlin Renner, motivated him by leaving post-it notes everywhere. She also left powerful and emotional messages for him, which he shared on his Instagram.
Ava accompanied Renner in his first public appearance after the accident. They posed on the red carpet at the presentation of the Disney+ documentary series Rennervations, in which Renner helps charities by giving out-of-service vehicles a new use. Renner said, “It was intense, but it is one more step in the direction in which I want to go.”
