When I was 15 I broke my left forearm really badly to the extent they didn’t know if I would be able to use it again. I had an operation where they had to put metal plates and pins inside my arm which is not removable, I remember when I finally had my cast off I couldn’t even lift a pencil without my arm shaking like a leaf due to them having to cut through my arm or whatever they did.
For training I always knew this would be a problem it is still a lot weaker than my right arm and it shows in size too.
My problem lately is I’m training harder and better and anything that I use this arm for causes stiffness and aching pain, I can’t move the arm around properly enough to do a barbell curl and any direct forearm flexors/extensors work seems to be out of the question, I do however feel I get a fair bit of work out of it through my other lifts due to the need of the grip.
I just wondered if with the arm being in the state it is whether it is worth the risk of training it?
I want to train it and probably wont stop training but I don’t want to damage it anymore than it already is, I suspect the metal plate and pins inside the arm are causing a problem with the way the muscle is growing and possibly the increase in bone density could be causing problems?? Anyway please give me some advice on this asap, especially as I’m about to go workout now
