Title: Broken Clavicle Healed - What lifts to stay away from?
Post by: BogoMips on May 06, 2009, 01:29:02 PM
Hi everyone, I broke my collarbone about a year ago. Had two surgeries (first one failed) and finally it is healing. The surgeon gave me the go ahead but said to take it easy. He didn't take the time to get into specifics with me. What lifts stress the collar bone? I have been doing everything a little lighter and not doing overhead press or squats. Thanks all

Well this is a pretty tough question...The Clavicle is so vital in a lot of workouts I do, so I can see how finding safe workouts could be a bit difficult. I'm definitely not an expert, but I have had clavicle injuries and had to adjust.  I personally would not do a lot of my usual core workouts. (Bench,power clean/half cleans, rows etc...especially stuff shoulder related) I would instead to a lot of machine and cable work. When I hurt my shoulder I used the smith machine a lot more and lighter cable work.  I trained legs and cardio pretty much the same, but my upper body workout, drastically changed. When the time is right, you can jump back on light free weights and begin to build yourself back up. 

I think eventually you have to trust doing all the other stuff.  I've know a couple athletes with similar injuries and they do end up working out again 100% It just takes time.  Good luck!

You can prevent that from happening again by avoiding extensive mass training

Hi

I read some opinion in this topic. I do not agree above ideal. We can find out some articles at about.com, I think that it is useful for our community.
