So I finally had a vacation which was great. But I got a blow to my ribs when doing some water sports. Went to the doctor he said it might be a fracture. Which takes like couple weeks to heal. Can't lift right now and can't do running :(
I never had an injury in this area before. It's pretty much limits my options for working out. Anybody had ribs fracture before ? how long did it take to go back to working out ?

I've had several injuries to my ribs. Mostly from just going crazy at hardcore punk shows. I'm not as young as I use to be.

All there is to do is just rest and take it easy, most anything will make them uncomfortable and of they get worse you don't want them to puncture a lung or something.

It sucks bit you're probably looking at at least a month off from most physical activities to ensure a proper recovery.

Just eat well enough to maintain. I never go too low in a month I just drop an amount that'll be easy to regain. You may feel comfortable enough with some muscle groups to lift light light weight. I would suggest that with high reps. All you have to do to avoid atrophy is use the muscle.

I did a somersault over the handlebars of my mountain bike at 25 mph and bruised the hell out of my ribs on the asphalt in April. (The concussion and separated shoulder weren't fun, either.) I concur on the healing for a month advice.

You have absolutely no need to worry: muscles have memory, big time. When I finally got back to the dumbbell rack, it only took me a few weeks to get back the levels I had before and even a little more. Key is to wait until nothing hurts anymore. Stretch lightly, go about your day, do other exercises to keep your blood moving and your endorphin rush coming (walking, hiking, low impact sex, grip exercises...whoops, didn't mean to be redundant, there. :lol: ) Eat bone building calcium sources.

Don't call it "time off" or "healing" or "recovery." Tell people you're cross-training or experimenting with a new schedule. Tell yourself that, too. The body takes its orders from the brain and you'll heal a lot faster if you're not thinking about yourself as wounded the whole time. Nothing's changed, you're still in building mode, it's just bone you're building at the moment.

When you do get back in the weight room, visualize your comeback as being like pushing a car. At first, it's a bitch and it's slow going and you have to take small steps. But then, you get rolling and it's suddenly easier and easier to move that thing. In no time at all, you're sprinting behind it. Momentum builds on itself even if it starts from a standstill. You'll be kicking ass and taking numbers before Thanksgiving.

After 5 weeks of no workouts waiting for my rib to rebuild I am back!
Did an easy run yesterday. And 40 minutes weight workout today pain free. Seems I lost some strength and endurance. But I don't care it feels so great to be able to train again !
