    How did you deal with it? How long was it before you started exercising again?

    I broke mine 2 weeks ago. Kinda bummed out because i was just getting more serious about working out and it sucks because now im getting all soft while i heal. :wtc:

    Im doing light exercises (like a bitch) for now and im hoping to work back to pre-broken rib intensity by 4 weeks time. You think that's pushing it?

    What does F&N think? Thanks guys.

    I cracked a rib or two, shit sucks

    I putzed around doing some light stuff for about 4 weeks, 6 weeks I started going heavier. about 2 months before I really started going heavy on squats.

    Cracked a rib last year. 2 months later I could lift like a 12 year old girl.

    Normally i lift like a 16 year old girl, so that really set me back.

    Go Cart racing accident. Massive Tbone at 40mph. Came out of seat, landed back in it, crooked. My rips hit edge of seat. Cracked 3 of them. Took about 4-6 weeks.

    A friend and I got drunk freshman year and both being whitetrash rednecks decided it would be a good idea to start boxing. I somehow managed to connect perfectly to the side of his ribcage and cracked one of his ribs.

    I cracked the shit out of one playing football one year, kept lifting and practicing for about a week before it occurred to me that really sharp pain in my side every time I inhaled wasn't normal.

    so get it checked out and harden the fuck up

    Last summer at a friend's bachelor party I was shit faced and decided it would be smart to try and climb through the window of our party bus (standard school bus) to get back in...

    Got stuck, did something bad to a rib or three and was out of commission for a couple of weeks. :o

    I couldnt even get out of bed by sitting up. I would have to roll on to my stomach gently and push myself up with my arms. It got old.
