    Stick to things that don't involve your hand!

    Seriously though, that article was good.

    I don't know if you broke it or sprained it (a surgery is pretty serious though), but 4 months of not using that hands sucks. You wouldn't wanna train only one side and develop huge imbalances.

    My advice would be to stick with lifts that build the whole body but dont use your hand, squats, zerchers lifts of all forms, ab work, glute ham raise or roman chair stuff.

    For yur upper body, pull-ups/chins should still be an option. Grip with your good hand then get a strap you can put around your wrist if thats possible.

    Just some ideas, hope it helps, and let your hand fully heal. This might not be a bad time to focus on some conditioning.

    Work out what you can manage with a weight vest too.

    Zombie Squats for definite.

    Rest the bar on your delts (where you would rest the bar were you racking a power clean) stretch your arms straight out, squat as you would if it where a normal front squat.

    No way you can deadlift using a strap for the injuried hand?

    elastic bands are very simple and you can set them into your elbow-pit ant work your upper arm/shoulder etc.

    Swimming, especially butterflies. Or just drag your legs and swim with your upper body. A very safe way to exercise while recovering.

    Four months go fast. Heal.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    ttt^ +1^ etc!! I just got back into the strength training program that I meant to start in May! Where did that time go? Live your life, fly!! Be free!!

    Another one idea though, my dad broke both of his wrists badly earlier this year. His primary source of therapy has been pottery. Sounds dumb perhaps, but it has helped restore much of his fine-motor coordination and continues to build up his strength as he gets into bigger pots, vases and such.

    Just an idea...

    Actually it's not a bad idea at all dude. I've never worked on pottery,but I did work in a bakery eons ago. Stirring and working dozens of pounds of dough worked the crap out of my arms and hands.

    IIRC, physical therapists usually give these heavy silly-putty goo things to people with hand fractures, for the same reasons.
