    Training with a broken hand, ideas?

    Left hand is broke. I cant grip or apply pressure to my left hand or lower forearm.

    Lower body ill be fine I can still squat and dead.

    For upper body
    machine flies with elbows on pads
    Band chocked on forearm for tricep ext bicep curl lateral raise front raise and band pull-aparts

    I'm not sure on how to train back. I have lifting hooks but they're too small for my arm so ill have to modify them. Any other ideas would be appreciated thanks.

    I could see rigging some sort of band setup to the elbow area for rows and maybe the mid forearm for pullovers.

    You can deadlift with a broken hand?

    This might help you to train around the hand injury: http://www.isolatorfitness.com/

    It is quite expensive though...
