    Right when I am the most motivated this happens!

    Had to get stiches in my thumb, due to cutting it at work. Right when I was doing good with eating and lifting. I can still lift somewhat, but I had to get a tet shot in my shoulder...THIS SUCKS!!

    If you let something as little as stitches in your thumb keep you from lifting, then you were not that motivated.

    You get stiches in your legs?

    It may not have anything to do with motivation. I can relate to what he is saying. I recently chipped a bone in one of my fingers and I was having a hard time gripping anything. I did what I could for a couple of weeks but it was so frustrating.

    I had seven stitches in my thumb last year and I set a personal record on bench with them. Fight through some of the pain, big guy. In the end it will be worth it.

    On the other hand, if he rips it open again, he'll be waiting an extra couple of weeks for it to heal up.

    So, get your body in tune to other things..such as running, kickboxing(minus the punching), anything you can think of! That's what I did when I had troubles...I had hurt my legs from running too hardcore, and my back from (hehe )

    Point is, always somethin' to do with small injuries.

    I don't know about you, but on all lats exercises, I don't use the thumb. You don't need your thumbs to squat neither.
