    I am really sorry to hear about all of this man, sounds like a scene from a horror movie or something. I can't even imagine what would I do with myself if I had to go through this exact scenario, that's though!

    I want to say ''if you were 230 at one point, you can always build your BW up to that number again.'' I am, however, clueless about how someone can engage in hypertrophy training through high volume and boxing again with half of his left collar bone removed and with wires wrapped around his chest. I have never actually seen someone with wires wrapped around his chest, what does it look like? Are they made from flexible yet dense material that would allow you to lift again? What does your doctor say about this?

    Sorry to hear about the accident. Glad you're alive and tryin to grt back into working out.

    To be honest I think u should ask a qualified rehabilitation specialist. Because of you're injures any tips given here could potentially be dangerous for u. Injuries like this are complex and working out should be done w advice from a professional that knows you're injuries and give u specific workout plan.

    It won't happen over night but any gains you make should be a tremendous motivator to keep goin. Good luck brutha

    Damn. Sorry to hear that you got injured. I would check with your doctor make sure that it’s okay to return to training. Do you have pictures of injury or x-rays? I am interested in seeing what doctors did.
