  • what are some good workouts after a car accident.

    An accident a week ago left me with a stiff neck (don't have full range of motion but it is improving), painful upper back (feels like it's burning) and an uncomfortable (but not painful) knee and ankle. Walking is OK, but my back hurts like a bitch if I carry a bag for any great distance. Watering plants from a full gallon bottle is OK, but a couple of elevated push ups at my desk = pain.

    Before the accident, I was following the workouts in the New Rules of Lifting for Women. I took a week and half off while I was on vacation, then had the accident a few days after I returned, so it's been a while since I've done any weight training. I gained three pounds over vacation, which I expected based on choices I made, but also another two in the last week. Diet is now back on track - lots of bone broth, some organ meats, fermented foods. I'm exhausted at the end of the day (desk job) and sleep is good.

    I'm scheduled to see a chiropractor in two weeks. What should I do until then? I was thinking body weight squats and lunges, longer walks, and leave my upper body alone until the chiropractor weighs in.

    I would just keep walking at the moment until after the chiropractor can see what's up.

      beautiful
      yeah you are

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

        Your body needs to repair itself don't exercise until you're normal for you or close to it

          Sorry to hear. Man, sucks you cant get into the chiropractor sooner. I'd call em back and tell them it was urgent. It would really help you get back to training sooner. Till then I wouldn't do anything weighted until you have full ROM without pain. This is kind of the "rule" when it comes to rehabbing an injury. So just work on some low and slow cardio and do some ROM exercises to the pain, but not through it. Ice and heat as necessary.

            I guess it's unanimous. I'll just keep walking.
