Jeremy Renner is doing ‘whatever it takes’ to recover from a horrific snowplow incident earlier this year.
The Marvel star, 52, shared a video on Monday of him improving his leg strength using a Technogym bike.
Renner focused on his left leg as he sat on the chair and kicked away, using his hand to help with the movements.
“Whatever it takes,” he wrote in the video.
Renner also prioritized his “mental recovery” as he curled up by the fire and flipped open The Book of Awakening, a “spiritual diary” written by philosopher, poet, and cancer patient Mark Nepo.
Road to recovery: Jeremy Renner is doing ‘whatever it takes’ to recover from his terrifying snow plow incident last year
Renner has chronicled his recovery since surviving the horrific incident on New Year’s Day. His recovery may take years.
Renner used his snow clearing tractor to get his cousin’s car out of his driveway at his residence near Reno, Nevada, after it got stuck in the snow.
However, his snowplow started sliding down a street after the car was towed, prompting the actor to jump out of his cab.
After getting out of the vehicle, Renner realized it could potentially hit his cousin, who was with him at the time of the incident.
The Mayor of Kingstown star then attempted to re-enter the snowplow to divert his path, but was pulled under the left lane and run over during the attempt.
Renner was crushed under the vehicle and was immediately taken to hospital as he suffered from breathing difficulties and several other injuries.
The report from the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office found that the snowplow may have had several mechanical problems at the time of the incident.
The artist underwent several medical procedures while recovering at the hospital and often expressed his gratitude to his medical team through his Instagram account.

Renner was eventually allowed to recover at home and last month shared a photo of himself undergoing physical therapy.
He also wrote a short message in the caption of his post that read in part, “I want to thank EVERYONE for their messages and thoughtfulness to my family and me…Much love and appreciation to all of you.”
The actor added, “These 30 plus broken bones will mend, grow stronger, just as the love and bond with family and friends deepens. Love and blessings to you all.’
Evangeline Lilly, who co-starred with Renner in The Hurt Locker, recently spoke to Access and revealed that the performer was in a good mood after the accident.
“I expected to sit next to his bed and hold his hand as he groaned and groaned in pain and was unable to move. He turned around and laughed with his friends. It’s a miracle,” she said.

Lilly noted that while Renner was not yet fully recovered, he had a positive outlook on his future.
“He has a journey to make now. Nightmares were made of that, and he survived, and now he’s on the other side,’ she said.
