Jeremy Renner Shares Amazing Exercise Video to Mark 10 Months of Recovery
Jeremy Renner took to Instagram on Wednesday to share an update on his recovery exactly 10 months after a snowplow rolled over him, crushing 30 bones in his body. He posted several videos of himself doing exercises, showcasing incredible mobility so soon after his near-death experience.
“Today marks the day of 10 months of recovery,” Renner captioned the montage, which was scored to Eric Zayne’s “Sign” and featured the Hawkeye star doing a slow jog, high knees, and a side-to-side shuffle up and down a fairly steep hill. “First attempt at any of this activity (especially at steep grade) and was brought to tears of joy, hopefulness, and gratitude for all your support along with my family and friends,” he told his fans.
People poured into the comments to pay tribute to the Avengers: Endgame actor, praising his resolve and commitment to healing. “Never give up! So amazing,” wrote Bear Grylls.
User @laurencorinha, who identified herself as a nurse, expressed astonishment at Renner’s progress. “As a nurse, knowing your injuries, I can’t believe it’s been only 10 months. That’s all you,” she wrote. “It’s how you’ve cared for your mind, your body, and your soul. You’re truly incredible and should be so proud of the fact that you’ve invested so much in yourself.”
Last week, Renner posted a separate update in which he informed fans that he’s “been exploring EVERY type of therapy since” the accident. “Everyday, countless hours of physical therapy, peptide injections, IV drips and pushes, stem cell and exosomes, red light / IR therapy, hyperbaric chamber 2.0 atmospheres, cold plunge, and the list goes on and on.”
However, Renner found that “my greatest therapy has been my mind and the will to be here and push to recover and be better.”
Renner had been trying to extricate his nephew from the snow when he slipped off of his snowplow and was caught underneath. The actor suffered a variety of broken bones, including shattered ribs, legs, and facial bones. He made his first post-accident red carpet appearance just a few weeks later at the April premiere of his Disney+ series Rennervations.
