I sprained m wrist in a rugby tournament in July. I RICE'd it for a few days and then wrapped with whenever I worked out. Long story short, I haven't given it enough rest to recover and I've realized I finally need to lay off it.

Are there any upperbody exercises I can do that won't stress my wrist?

Try the search engine. See if anything comes up.

Otherwise, just remember that getting rid of the injury is top priority here. If you work through it and aggravate it, then you will probably just be giving yourself longer heal time and ruin your training schedule even worse.

I have heard of the *shudder* pec deck being a possibility. I am not sure if I would want to soil my hands with the blood of my stabilizer muscles, though, if I were you. Yeah, I am being overly dramatic, but I really don't like machines. :lol:

Kevin, I have the same problem with my shoulder, and I want to do the fight gone bad thing in Sept. I tried light workouts and everytime I just wind up back where I started with the same sore shoulder. I just decided to lay off it all together and let it heal. I do a lot of running now and lower body stuff, but as far as upper body, my shoulder is a lot like your wrist...that being there's not a lot of upper body exercise you can do without getting your wrist involved. It's frustrating but Id' say just rest it. And like derrick mentioned, maybe some machine work, but I'm in agreement with him about machines, they are my absolute last resort. Good luck.

Yes Milltun, I don't really like machines. :happy:

No offense intended, I just find that many people misspell my name and it is just kind of surprising that you would when my post was just previous to yours. :lol:

That's okay. I'm not mad at all. I thought it was more funny than anything.
