Many of you guys message me saying you have given up fitness or bodybuilding due to Kienbock’s or other wrist injuries. But did you know exercise can actually stimulate blood flow and even HGH production which can help you overcome INJURY? Sleep and exercise are actually two main factors to increase HGH (human growth hormone) which helps grow our cells and therefore recover from injury?
A study says:
What has made this possible is the sound experimental design and the environment that the U-M offers to do this responsibly and ethically, to eliminate that cloud of suspicion surrounding HGH. We are not looking in any way at performance enhancement. Rather, we are investigating the potential medicinal applications to improve outcomes and help patients, not just athletes, recover from can otherwise be career-ending injuries,” Bedi says.
HGH is a hormone that stimulates cell growth and cell regeneration. In its synthetic form, HGH is available only by prescription and only for a short list of approved indications, including childhood growth disorders and wasting disease. In a legal gray area, HGH is sometimes prescribed for supposed anti-aging effects, which are not well-documented. It does shrink fat and cause muscle tissue to absorb water, improving definition, or tone (http://www.medicineatmichigan.org/web-exclusives/2016/february/medsport-studies-hgh-acl-repair).
So what are the exercises you can perform safely without the use of your wrists?
- Side Lateral Raises
No wrist required and you can seriously develop these side delts on this machine. Try it out and make sure to make a decent squeeze at the top and a controlled movement down.
Rows can be performed mostly with the use of the isolator fitness cuff. If you think your wrist may be out of order for a while you may want to invest in this cool equipment.
Obviously you can still do legs and cardio. Yes, it’s still good for you. Keep healthy and fit and your injury is bound to heal soon.
4. Yoga & Meditation
I have mentioned before that healing meditation and yoga is of real hep. Have you ever heard the term your body does what your mind believes? Well it does work. Try to conciously send some positive vibrations towards your injured areas and after a few weeks you may notice a difference. Positive thinking works as long as your belief is strong and true.
