So I broke my hand last week and had surgery and was given a 3 month timetable for full recovery. I'm assuming then it will be another solid month or two after that before I can really hit the weights hard again so I've been looking at other methods of exercise. I'm not a big runner, but my physical therapist said I can probably start on a recumbent bike and maybe running within two weeks. I'm good and all with that, but may want a little more. Any good ideas?

I found these straps online that connect to your forearm that you can still utilize pulley machines for which may help with some stuff. Any advice is appreciated. Within two weeks I assume I'll be able to do anything that doesn't involve putting my hand on the ground flat or gripping anything so no weights at all, push ups, etc.

Well you can take advantage of this opportunity to do a lot of ab workouts []

Sorry to hear about your hand.

I've actually become pretty content with this. It really sucks not having the ability to do absolutely any upper body work and it's showing in my arms and back, but I have taken this opportunity to get my cardio way up. I always hated heavy cardio, because I didn't like skipping lifting and after a good run, I'm pretty burnt out and don't have the same energy to get through a good lift. But now, I've taken advantage of cardio and abs. I bulked up quite a bit this winter and put on some weight which I wasn't exactly pleased about because I've always been a fan of cut over thickness, but it's already melting away after a week of cardio.

Abs and leg exercises sounds like all you can do. Body weight squats, lunges, good mornings, donkey kicks, plus any machine work should do the trick.

Good luck getting healthy! It sucks being injured!

Purchased the isolator cuff edition tonight. Probably got ripped off costing me $60+ and will have to likely wait a week to get it, but I think in the long run it'll help so I'm not pushing the weights too early and re-injure myself. I opted not to get the 4 pointed isolator simply because of price and I think I'll be able to do just as much with just the two pointed cuff as the four. If anybody has any advice or experience with this, let me know. I'm trying to put together some lifts I know I can do with it. A form of lateral shoulder raises, lat pull downs, chest flys, biceps and triceps. What else am I missing?


I've never heard of or seen the isolator before, but I would be interested to hear a personal review after you use it for a few weeks. I'm always up for trying something new.
