How to Get Jacked Up After Getting "Jacked" Up

One of my best friends in college was a guy who loved to hit the gym hard.

Unfortunately, that was not the only thing he would hit hard.

He also loved to hit people's faces, brick walls, and steel doors.

As many of you know, the aftermath of one of these punches is usually some broken bones in your hand.

While you may temporarily feel good after "winning" your fight or blowing off some steam, you will soon become miserable when you realize you can't use both hands in the gym for the next 8 to 12 weeks.

Fortunately for you street brawlers and wall smashers, there is a way to stay jacked up after you get "jacked" up.

This point is extremely important for athletes as well.

If you play a contact sport, there is a good chance that you are going to encounter an acute injury that may temporarily take one of your limbs out of commission.

Rather than sit home and shrink, get creative and continue to grow.

How is this possible?

It's simple:

Keep moving heavy loads with your body parts that still function properly.

The effects of overcoming these heavy loads will permeate throughout your entire body, even if you are only using one limb.

I was actually able to test this "theory" a few years ago when one of my best athletes broke his hand during summer training.

I put him on an intense One Arm training regimen for 8 weeks, and when the cast came off, he ended up benching more than he did at the beginning of the summer.

If you are looking for a way to actually execute a one arm lift, check out the clip below of a one arm bench press.

(One key coaching point is to brace the entire body prior to executing the lift.

Not only will it help you to get jacked up, it will also keep you from falling over due to the imbalance of weight.)
