    Others will be able to chime in better then me. Overall I would use this time to concentrate on rest and to keep eating heavy. Get better though man, that sucks.
    Just inject.

    I know how you feel. I was forced to be sedentary for 3 months. What type of cast are you in? Up to your forearm?


    On the bright side, muscle memory will put you back to where you were in a few weeks. And if you're like me, it'll put you up a few more pounds than you were originally.

    I understand your pain and frustration - I broke my left wrist (in two places) around this time last year and was out for about the same amount of time. You need to find out what your Maintenance is for your sex, age, height, and weight at either a "sedentary" or "very low" activity level (since that's what you'll be), and then maintain your caloric intake at that or slightly above. Your NUTRITION will be the most important thing in maintaining for you during the time you cannot train.

    You can add in a few days of cardio - since you can still do that, once the pain is manageable, on things like a stationary bike, etc. - if you want to remain active. You can also do lower body calisthenics/plyometrics - again, once the pain is manageable; if you're anything like I was, even the slightest movement for most of the time was PAIN.

    As mentioned, once you can train again, your strength, etc. will come back fast enough - mine did. You need to make sure that you DO start off easy, though, and take the time to rehabilitate your hand/injury properly, or you will make things worse and put yourself out for longer.

    You can't do anything like core/legs? I have one arm (no left), and it's never really held me back. It's probably different being in a cast though. Can you just refrain from right arm exercises and do the rest?

    One handed dead lifts and clean and presses. I have read somewhere that if you work out one side of your body the other side will still grow and get stronger..must be around somewhere...Good time to strengthen your weak side anyway hehheh.

    I broke my right hand punching something ...

    Anyway.. It re-broke about five weeks later while in the cast using it to hit something else.. and then broke it a third time after that. Now my right hand is permanently shorter than my left because the bones grew back curved. Long story short I still lifted and did cardio to keep up. I would slide my hand though a handle for the cables and hold it on my wrist to do curls and tricep pull downs. As long as it's not hurting you , you can still use the arm. Just go light, and stay active.
