    Broken hand... stop cycle??

    Hey guys, a shitty situation has developed for me. I am 6 weeks in on my var,primo, and prop cycle. I had planned to run it for 12 weeks. Last night I broke my ring finger of my right hand. Today I get the x ray done and it shows a broken knuckle. Expected recovery is 6 weeks....

    Any thoughts?

    you dont have to stop the cycle.. but dont expect your gains to be anything good. Contrary to popular belief aas will build you muscle even if you sit on your ass but very minimal. If i were you id stop. wait however long you are supposed to after your last inject and start pct

    I'd try to work through it. Obviously, you'll have to modify some exercises which could end up being a pain in the ass but at least it's worth a try.
    Good luck and keep us posted.

    you could keep taking the aas and do legs and you could do cable exercises without having to hold with your hand.. just put on your wrist.. might hurt a little but you wont waste 6 weeks worth of aas... do a lot of ab workouts and stuff.. you can still salvage something

    stop recover and start again when you feel better.

    No reason to get half ass gains..

    I dunno man thats a crappy situation to be in.

    Working out with a broken hand is like a guy going to an orgy with a 3" d!€k.

    Stop your cycle, run pct and rehab your hand properly.

    A lot of conflicting advice here! Each side sounds equally reasonable. I'm pretty pissed about it. If I were to stop my cycle today... Could I resume using my half full vials when I'm healed and ready to cycle again?

    Ok so the doc @ the hospital said four to six weeks to heal. Right now I have a temporary fibreglass cast. Gonna go get a custom made cast next week. I'll ask that doc what he suggests in terms of exercise and training. I think the answer is clear however


    I'll let u bros know what's up next week. Thanks and have a good weekend.

    I say run PCT and by the time your hand recovers it will be time to jump back on cycle

    I say take some time, get some good r&r, continue on a trt dose of test (normal/high test levels aid in recovery...pct takes time for natty levels to return), come back fresh next cycle and more importantly DONT SWEAT THIS man! Sh*t happens. Stress hinders recovery speed. Good luck brotha.

    If you cant train 110% then its time for PCT. Wait until you recover from your injury.

    Never stop a cycle when injured!!! You know what happens when you stop all anabolic stuff and drive your body to catabolic state... Do you think that will help to recover from your injury? In severe cases your injured body part will never be the same again.. This was my doctor advice when I had serious triceps injury and needed surgery..

    Kyle,
    If you are prepared to use the money spent on gear to aid in recovery of your hand that is completely up to you.
    Consider that in your hand you have very little actual muscle located around the middle finger. Aas will likely not aid in your specific healing requirements. A broken bone. I'm going out on a limb here but, i'd venture to state aas will not accelerate bone mending significantly enough to stay on cycle. FEEL FREE TO CHIME IN HERE SMARTER PEOPLE.
    Seems as though Pete75 experienced a triceps injury. One which aas would most likely aid in recovery time significantly enough to warrant the total shut down of your hpta.
    RISK AND REWARD balance...

    The training 110% made the most sense to me... Looks like I'll be doing my pct and healing properly. What a shame though!!

    Thanks to all who offered advice
