Should I keep training with an injury or take a break?

  1. Question Should I keep training with an injury or take a break?


    Hello,

    I just sprained my right wrist. It's not too bad but it does hurt when I try to grip a bar. So my question is should I still train around the injury or should I take rest until my wrist heals? I only use dumbbells for training so can I keep training using only my left arm? Will doing unilateral exercises have any cross over benefits? Or should I take a few days off and let my wrist heal completely and then start training again with lighter weights and then ramping them up? I'm really confused about taking breaks/rest days. I'm always worried that I might lose my hard earned gains if I just take a few days rest.

    Thanks!

  2. Let it heal so you don't cause any further damage. When you do get back into it utilize wrist wraps for extra support until it's 100%
    “Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. ... lead them by your own good example.” 1 Peter‬ 5:2-3‬
