Strength training

Friday, June 25, 2010

Question, both my hands were injured in a motorcycle accident; it makes it difficult to do strength training; do you have some hand-less ideas on strength training at home?

    The right wrist is fused, no flexibility in the wrist joint, left wrist was broken in 6 places; it has 5 lbs of strength; however, the rest of my upper body is fine...

    I would just start with body resistance at first. You could also get weights that strap to your wrist. Since I'm not sure what your limitations are, it's hard to give advice. Perhaps you can use resistance bands? They can be looped around the wrist or forearm etc. Hope this helps
