What To Do When Not At The Gym


#1

I hurt my ankle a couple months ago and although I am doing german volume training, I am still skinny. I am not active because i can't run or play sports at the current time. Furthermore, I am afraid of eating too much because i sit around all day except when i Work out.

So, I would like to do an exercise that gets my blood pumping, increases hypertrophy and activates my muscles. Whats a good daily excersice routine that i can do?

you could try fucking a really hot chick that you know...

as long as she's willing...


#3

Can you ride a bicycle? You won't have any impact on your ancle and your weight will be on the sadle.


#4

You have not yet learned to work around an injury?

If the ankle hurts work the upper body.


#5

How serious is the injury? Mild sprains take about 3-4 weeks to recover from... If it's been months, then it is probably very serious and you should consult a doctor.

Can you walk without pain? How about bodyweight squats?


#6

I agree that you can work around the injury. I broke my foot 2 weeks ago. Took one week off and and using crutches at the gym. Can do all upper body and can still do hammy curls and leg extensions. It may be a bit painfull but as the saying goes no pain no gain.

This sounds like the best advice.


#8

I would imagine he would get a better workout if she wasnt willing...


#9

LOL. Then 20 years of cardio running away from some guy named "T-bone" in the shower.


#10

I'd rather run from the law than T-bone.

Lift what you can, rehab, get in a pool.
