    Quad Accident

    D*mn guys I just got back from riding my quad with a few friends....... I got f*cked up pretty good this time around. I was going off a jump and didn't approach right and half way up I decided to ditch the quad and as I came down I put my hand under me to stop the fall and I bent 3 fingers backward on my right hand..... I was also only wearing a short sleave shirt cause it was hot and I am an idiot. I broke the 3 fingers, scrapped up my arms and legs pretty good.....and I am sore as hell. I have those little cast things on my fingers. How long does a broken finger take to heal? I don't think I am going to be able to lift now as I won't be able to grip a bar, and not only that but I start College on Monday and I don't think I will be able to write now either. I am soooo pissed....... but this just goes to show you have to be careful. A stupid move is probably gona cost me a few weeks of being able to lift now. I guess I can focus on legs once I am not sore from falling anymore.


    Just thought I would share / vent

    get well soon bro. i bet after a few weeks of initial healing you will be able to do some movements. or you could focus on cardio/abs and get ripped as hell. best wishes.

    in the meantime...get your cardio on, work legs...and do whatever machines you can without gripping (chest, shoulders, etc).

    Have a speedy recovery man, I bet you'll come up with ways to work around the fingers( as much as possible), if you have alot of joint stiffness after the fingers heal,check out some bextra, I bent 3 toes backward until they were resting on the top of my foot ( chasing an %sshole spotlighting deer on my land and I stepped in a stumphole) and the bextra really knock the edge off the joint discomfort....sounds like you might need to record your lectures @ school..best of luck

    I just stopped the DNP last Sunday......I am going to wait until it is cold outside before I embark on that again lol.


    I don't plan on sitting around either.....I will just hit up legs and cardio and try to work around the fingers.



    Thanks for all the comments guys. I'll keep ya updated
