The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    How'd you break the wrist.. and i want pics just for fun lol... Do HIIT while injured and work your other arm enough to maintain but not gain or else you will end up with a horrible imbalance.

    Squats if you can hold a bar on your back. Use high bar placement if you need too. Planks for your core. If you can afford it, buy some a light or average band for band GMs to work your posterior. 1-handed deadlifts would be alright but make sure when your hand heals you even it out. Other wise just take it easy if need be, wrists only take like a month or two to heal right?

    Put the diet in check and maintain. Rest up and heal.

    I agree, I have broken my wrist three times, just let it heal, don't push it or else it will never heal properly.

    The first time I borke it I cut the cast off early and I had problems for many years. It wasnt until the second time that I broke it that I let it heal back to 100% or so, been fine thusfar. Third time was the other arm.

    From previous experience, squats are do-able, good mornings, pull throughs, calf raises, bar-on-back-shrugs, zercher squats. You're probably going to have a hard time doing any type of pressing or upper body work. Row's may be doable depending on how recently you broke your wrist.

    i'd bite the bullet and let that thing heal. no point in trying to keep working out while its broken, and re-injure it and have you out longer than the initial month-2 month healing time.
