Hello,

I have broken a couple of ribs after falling off a banana boat on holiday last Friday.

I'd really appreciate some advice on how best I can maintain strength (been on 5/3/1 for a couple of years) and train around this, especially from those who've had the same injury before. I've seen a doctor and was told average healing time is 10 weeks...no way i want to rest for that long.

Cheers
Eagle

i broke a couple of ribs and tried to train round it (thru the pain) and it cant really be done , strapping doesnt seem to help , all i did was went thru the exersises that didnt give me MASSIVE PAIN SPASMS !! and stick with them

it certainly didnt take 10 weeks tho .... i would say 6 ...

cheers Boar, thanks for the reply. As you say I think I'll just have to do the best I can. Hoping I can get a fair bit of training done on machines.

I agree with boar. You have very little say in the matter, you can do what the rib allows, no more. You will have to assess the situation on a day by day basis
