Sorry to hear about your broken arm!!!  I have a couple questions and then maybe I can help.  What type of fracture did you have?  Does your cast stop before your elbow or does it go beyond the elbow and include your upper am?

I’ve broken quite a few limbs (5 all elbows, and wrists)… don’t do it. You don’t want it broken again because it’s not healing properly, right?

You’ll look wonderful. Keep jogging, that’ll do alot for keeping you in shape.

You can always do P90 after you get the cast off.

Just saw you get the cast off 6 weeks before the wedding. That’s tons of time to tone up your arms. You’ll look beautiful!!

Conduct music. seriously, just move them in various ways that you can move. Think shadow boxing with what limited movements you have.

That will help you gain some (minimal) muscle and target the arms. And at the same time, go ahead and run if you want.

So first off I completely agree with NaeNae CA in that you’ll have plenty of time to get back in to shape before your wedding.  So don’t do anything crazy!  But you can definately do some things to help.  Cardio is always good, especially if you have access to an elliptical machine or stationary bike that has arm handles.  There is also really good evidence that there are benefits to the injured limb when training the uninjured limb.  So if you continue to do 1 arm lifting exercises (bicep curls, rows, deltoid raises, etc) with your good arm, there is a croos over effect to your bad arm.  Regardless, watch what you eat, stay active and you’ll be back to normal in no time and look fabulous on your big day!
