Fractured clavicle can I modify and train still

Recommended Posts

David Forsythe

I have a fractured right clavicle that doesn't require surgery. I don't plan on using the arm until medically cleared,though I would still like to train to some degree. 

Does anybody have modified versions or suggestions they can pass along to me

Thanks

David, sorry to hear about your injury. If you're trying to avoid using the arm completely, there are plenty of core and leg exercises to keep you busy. All the FL and SLS progressions from Foundations 1 are great options. Core, oblique, and spinal work on the backstraps are also awesome and challenging exercises that are gentle on the upper body. This might be a good time to focus on lower body strength and mobility until you're able to start using that arm again. Are you doing any of the stretch courses? The Front Split and Middle Split courses are great for working ankle, knee, hip, and hamstring mobility. 

Good luck!

When occur those type of injury the best solution is stop for a while especially if you do not have to lose skills for a competition. There are injuries and there are other injuries.  In your case happens that an entire upper body unit needs time to be repaired, every single movement that involve the rigid skeleton parts tend to involve all the skeleton. for this reason fi you want a speed recovery you need to reduce the amount of external efforts on the bones. I assume that this part is a bit painful, it is pretty common in order to avoid the pain to adjust the movement with bending, flexing, tilting. this will create imbalances.

When minor injuries occur we can easily overcome this problem.when bug injuries happen we ten to have more general consequences and less local consequences.If you want to stretch perform exercises that requires complete muscle isolation and not open chain exercises. See a sport doctors in order to know what you can and what you can't.
