    I messed up one of the bones in my hand and I'm really not sure how I did it, probably lifting. I thought it was a simple sprain and kept lifting and it got a bit worse. I quit lifting with it a couple weeks ago and I can use it fine normally, but I can't use it to lift at all. Hurts even when I shake someones hand. I'm going to the doctor next week most likely.

    Anyways, any advice on exercises I can do that doesn't use my right hand at all? I tried to do some DB stuff with my left hand but most exercises are pretty difficult without having equal weight in my other hand. The last couple weeks I've mostly stuck to cables and using machines with one hand the past couple weeks. Pretty much the only thing I've done that does anything on my right side is machine flys.

    I hate to lose so much strength in my right side doing near nothing with it.
