    Diet when injured


    I am unable to do any upper body for probably a month due to seperated shoulder. Ill be doing quads 2-3 times a weeks and hams 2 times a week. Does anyone have any advice about how much I should be eating to preserve muscle in my upper body while building muscle in my legs? Thanks

    it sounds like a lot of volume for them wheels.. but that's fine. just stick to your diet as normal with all that squatting its not likely to change your trajectory.

    Legs, upperbody rehab and normal diet and you be back in no time.
    A month is no time at all, don't rush the rehab or you will be back in square one.

    I agree, keep the diet the same as when you were training normally. I've been through this a few times - once for several months after shoulder surgery, couple times after a back injury. Best of luck with the rehab.

    Increase protein perhaps, but there's not a whole lot you can do.

    Times like these are truly rubbish but you have to remember pain is temporary and things will get better! Take care and heal well.
