    Hey guys, I just wanted to see if you guys have any experience / knowledge of anyone training after an injury immobilizes one side (like in a sling).

    Any thoughts of it would be beneficial in maintaining gains, or more-so focus on just lowering body?

    I hope this isn’t out of a scope of something you all are comfortable with answering. Thank you!

    To specific a bit more, I mean training unilaterally while in a sling on the opposite side. Thank you!

    Absolutely a good idea. It’s been shown to have some “carry over” to the injured side as well. (Help it not regress as quickly and come back faster). And if it were me, yes, I’m sure I’d just train lower body more as well. Basically I’d just try and train what ever you can, as frequently as possible. That you can actually recover from.

    Got it! I was thinking about that as well. Thank you!
