    Hmm, okay. I was hoping he'd have some milestones in terms of how you were doing physically, rather than just a timeframe, but such is life.

    The bottom line is that you don't want to reinjure your wrist, so if you suspect something is going to cause reinjury, don't do it.

    If you have the equipment for it, I suppose you could do cable triceps pushdowns with a "collar" that goes around your forearm just above the wrist. It'd take your hand and wrist out of the equation.

    Alright cheers man, I will most certainly bear that in mind in regards to the reinjury thing. I don't own any cable machines at home, but I do occasionally(oncea week or so) have access to them for free at my college's gym (which I will join as a member as soon as I can afford it, which with any luck won't be long). In the meantime, I might give tricep dips and tricep extensions a go, as they seem to be a good start. cheers for the advice lads I appreciate it. Any more tips you could give and I would be very thankful.

    Knuckle push ups (on a padded surface of course) with elbows tucked in (mucho importante). That's been the best option for me to hit the triceps whenever I've had a hand/wrist injury. Second to that, push up handles or the "perfect push up" gadget. However, sometimes grabbing a handle when doing push ups can put pressure on an injured wrist just like a barbell bench press.

    Just so I'm clear, the thing I'm talking about is an attachment for a cable machine like this - they call it an ankle strap because that's usually where you wear it, but you *might* be able to use it around your forearm as well.

    Be careful.

    I would think that doing the exercises the doctor recommended for a while might be a better start. Doing the slow progression back into heavier weights might be better. That seems like the easiest path to avoiding injury to me. I wish I had some super secret that would make things work faster for you.

    Its too bad you don't have access to a gym, the YMCA I used to go to has these dip/pull-up machines that sort of push you up a little bit so that you can do less than body weight. The grips on them were awesome.

    Anyone think that Perfect Pushup gadget actually has much merit to it? It looks like it makes sense on first glance, but that kind of thinking hasn't worked well for me in the past. I have been thinking about picking one up if I ever see it in a thrift store or something.

    It worked for me, but for my shoulders. The fact that you can rotate the handles as you push up and down helps a lot in shoulder recovery - gentler than doing dips in rings (which is what helped me the most), but good enough to produce the instability I needed for shoulder recovery.

    However, I would suspect this could work in some cases, but not in others. That is, it's not the silver bullet for everyone's specific case of shoulder pain, nor it to be the uber-chest builder it is advertised to be.

    I do like them a lot since it worked for me. It is really different from your standard, fixed-position push up handles - with my previous caveat about possible wrist pain (which is what the OP is suffering.) So it's a trial and error kind of thing.

    If you can buy them cheapo on craiglist or in some yard sale, that'd be better. People buy this type of **** and never use them and then sell them for peanuts. For gadgets that might or might not work for you, this would be a good alternative to trying them out.

    A freind of mine has those Perfect Push Up things. He says they are very good; hence I am in the process of finding some I can by in any local stores rather then over the web.

    Have you tried wrapping your hands for those knuckle pushups and other exercises?

    Focus on wrapping the wrist, that might help.

    Are you talking about the weakness caused by the layoff, or is your wrist still interfering with training?
    I do them but use one big dumbbell or KB instead of two middle sized ones, I find it easier to keep my elbows pointed in the right direction doing it this way. I await criticism.

    I tried that, but to no avail with reguler pushups; however I still wear wrist supports when I do knuckle pushups (well, half pushups; it's all I can do at the moment hehehe).
