Training with jammed wrists
A few days ago I jammed my wrists. Careless mistakes with repercussions, wow that sure sucked. So a few days later now and I am anxious to train, but my wrists still hurt. I can't grapple, can't punch, can't workout upper body, and damn it all it hurts to play guitar.
Any advice on what to do in the mean time? I don't want to jump back into it like an idiot and end up worse than I was. I was thinking maybe just doing kicks, elbows, forearms and knees on the heavy bag, and some ab and lower body workouts.

Depends on how badly your wrists are screwed. Now I'm no doctor so I don't really know what the **** I'm talking about here.
Try knuckle pushups: keeps your wrists straight up and down. Works for me. I screwed up my wrists in high school with powerlifting and had to do knuckle pushups if i wanted to work upper body at all. it was the only thing that didn't hurt.A lie gets half-way around the world before the truth has time to get it's pants on. - Winston Churchhill

Avoid placing load on your wrists for a while, you need time to heal. Looks like you have a wonderful 2 week opportunity to work on your conditioning, core strength, legs and footwork.
