View Full Version : Fractured Wrist on Preacher Bar Curls

Well i havent posted up in about six months. Back in october, i was getting pretty heavy into the lifting, and one night at the gym, i fatigued myself on my last rep, and i had no control of the bar as it went down. I tried to hold onto the bar to control it, but as it hit the metal perch that it rests on the pain was intense. I left the gym right away, and couldnt sleep that night(pain). i went and got X-rays the next day and my doctor told me nothing was wrong, maybe a tendon pull, and to rest it for a few days. So i hit the gym a week later, and continued to train for 6 weeks.... the pain was evident in some exercises but not others, so i limited my routine to stuff that didnt hurt. Well i decided to rest it entirely and go back to the doctor. He decided to send me for a bone scan and 2 weeks ago informed me he had missed the fracture in the X-ray the first time around.

Has this ever happened to anyone? I'm wearing a splint for 6 weeks and taking a skeletal repair supplment. I miss the gym alot and am loosing mass rapidly. Its really sad.

I've heard it takes 6 weeks for muscles to begin atrophying, so don't worry man. You'll be back rockin' in no time, and your wrist will be stronger than it was before.

Sorry to hear that, let it heal though with no extra effort. You'll be back in no time!

Sucks dude. However, there might be a hidden message there about preacher curls.
