    It depends.

    Have you had x-rays to know for sure the extent of the damage?

    If it is indeed fractured, you will need at least 6 weeks to let it set up.

    At best I would say no movements that cause "pressure" on the rib cage, that means all chest pressing, most rows, squats, deads etc. Probably nothing where oyu must lie on a bench.

    You can do leg extensions. Leg curls ONLY on a standing or seated curl machine.

    But like a say, it depends on how bad the fracture is. In any case, it takes about 6 weeks for bone and soft tissues such as ligaments/tendons to heal.

    I see posts like this all the time on other boards and I have to ask this question: doesn't anyone just go to the doctor's office anymore?
