So ive been working out for a while now and my wrists have always bothered me a little but it wasnt too bad.. In the past month or so they got worse and it got to a point where i had to wrap them and then threw on my gloves and had to workout.. Yesterday i was working out and was doing curls and then boom just felt something in my left wrist and had to drop weight and couldnt continue on anymore. Needless to say i was pretty pissed off but i could not finish my workout and went home. This then caused me to cheat friday night and saturday morning but ive picked myself up and am going to continue keto.
I'm taking saturday and sunday off from the gym but i think its going to take more time for my wrist to heal enough so i can continue lifting.. I consider what i lift heavy.. at least its way better than before and i for one know i cannot hold 75 lb dummbels in my hands right now.. so is it going to be bad if i take a week off from the weights but continue keto diet and cardio everyday? Will i lose muscle.. should i just force myself in the gym on monday.. ahh help i was making solid progress until yesterdays workout what do i do?

Keep the protein high and train legs and cardio for a week. It might take two weeks.
The more time you give it, the better it will be.
Also I would not use gloves with wraps at the bottom of them. They caused my wrist injury. Use gloves that cover the hands only.Like Brutis...you can do dis.

My normal week goes:
Day 1 Chest Tri Abs
Day 2 Back BI
Day 3 Leg+Shoulders Abs
Day 4: Chest Tri
Day 5: Back Bi
Day 6: Leg+Shoulders Abs
With cardio 5 days a week.. so now maybe take 1-2 weeks off.. train legs twice a week do cardio 5 times a week and abs 3 times a week, continue with keto and ill be fine? What type of strength loss do you suppose i would see when returning as i imagine there would have to be some? If i can max bench 200 now for 5 reps.. would i still be able to do that after not benching for a week or maybe even 2 like you say

First thing I see is that you have no allowance for rest. You need rest to grow and you cannot train constantly. Your body grows during rest, no actually during the training.
Twy a two on, one off, then two on and then two off routine for proper rest and rebuilding.
For the glove, no wrisp wraps at all unless you need straps for shrugs or deadlifts. This wil lead to better forarm development which could have been why you unjured yourself. I made the same mistake myself.
You need to not worry about how much you can lift seeing it doesn't meatter when you can't lift anything due to shot wrists.
Just continue to train everything not requiring your wrists and you will not lose muscle if you maintain a lot of protein intake.Like Brutis...you can do dis.

Also, every 6-8 weeks, i recommend compeltely no weights and just cardio for a week to allow for your central nervous system and your whole body to completely repair.
After doign so you should feel the difference. It is liek you are he-man or something. Incredible.
Rest is just as important or actually more important than the training aspect.Like Brutis...you can do dis.
