I've recently just wiped out on my road bike which has resulted in a few stitches and a lot of sore bones (luckily no breaks, but I must have been on the verge). Anywho, the irritating part of this injury was the fact that my left wrist feels bruised, so I can't be lifting dumbells or any manner of heavy weights.
Is it possible to work out your arms without the use of your wrist? I've tried tying my dumbells to my forearms and doing a sort of chicken flap, but it's probably not going to go down too well at the gym. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
There are several things that you can do. You can do hammer curls if you are working your biceps. Because your wrist will not flex as much in this position. You can also use the same position for triceps. This will work you forearms as well as your lower biceps.
Your wrist help you cheat and lift great amounts of weight. The hammer curls will work different muscles than you are used to so it will probably be good for you.......As long as your wrist wont hurt in that position.
