Was doing a new workout involving weights last week and wound up dropping a 25lb. plate on my right hand.(dominant hand) Long story short I broke my index finger metacarpal(knuckle) in 3 places and fractured the middle finger metacarpal. Right hand is now casted and basically worthless.
My back story is I weighed 210lbs a year ago, began elliptical training on my 1/2 hour lunch breaks for 14 to 18 minutes. I used the pre-set workouts where it's hard initially then gets easy then gets hard again. Well, I decided when it got difficult for the 30 seconds I would go all out, then go with the flow of the machine for 1 minute then repeat.
Well I'm now down to 165lbs with a broken hand. Aside from weighted body squats(kid's backpack full of weights), situps, bridges, isometrics etc., what's the best way to train through an injury? I'm not changing my eating habits(just a statement of how I've been not rigid & unwilling to change)-85% raw fruits and veggies, almonds, meats, raw eggs, cooked eggs, coffee, beer-lots of it lately sorry.
