Last July I snapped my radius being an idiot, which kind of fucked me over. To compensate for not being able to lift I joined my schools cross country running team and have been dieting for the past month with another month of *light* cutting to go before I begin to bulk up again. I have been lifting for around a year now, before I broke my forearm(left), I was benching 220 as my 1rm and doing 5x5's with 160 pounds. Now if I bench anything over 100 pounds I get sharp pain in my left forearm. My doctor gave me the okay to start lifting again two weeks ago too, so the bone is completely healed.
Could the titanium plate they put in to hold my arm together be causing me pain? Or do I just need to slowly get my arm used to working out again and put a little more muscle on? I dident lose much size during the time my arm was broken, because I had the plate/screws put in I dident need a cast, so I got to use my arm just not for lifting, and it retained most of its size.
Any have any advice or been through something similar?
