    Torn ACL, still ok to workout upper body?

    no i did not tear mine, my buddy did a few months ago, and is 98% recovered. However, the doctor told him not to weightlift for a few months when it first happend.. I don't think it would be bad to workout upper body while having a torn ACL....(but then again im no doctor) can u damage yourself more if you do? Just a curious question, thanks!!
    YEAH BUDDAY!!!

    Let it recover, IMO.

    i tore mine a month ago and was doing upper body the next day just hobbling on crutches, and there was obvious discomfort but i did not do legs. if he sticks to it like that and goes to therapy to get R.O.M. back then he should be fine working out upper body.
