Injury during cut!! Diet help

Picked up a chest injury over the weekend. The strange thing is I havent trained chest since wednesday? I wasnt doing anything strenuous at the time so god knows why it happend. Its the same injury I picked up 2 years ago which is strange not sure if its due to a muscle imbalance on that side of my chest(left and this pec is slightly smaller than my right) Its sore when I take a deep breath or exhale really hard so not idea for trainning any muscle group let alone my chest.

Question is im 6 weeks into my cut and all was going really well what should I do? Just rest up, stick with my morning gentle cardio which will be ok and keep my calories low? Worried this my make me go catabolic without weight trainning? Would a week off weights and keeping my diet as it was and just doing my cardio be ok? Or will I lose muscle.

Thanks for any advance

A very frustrated Matt

    just traing as normal and lower the weight enough so that you can bench for a few sets, very unlikely youll go catabolic as youll be doing squats, deadlifts etc. if you need time to heal then rest up otherwise lower the weight and give it a shot, if you cant lift at all then dont work that muscle group and focus on the rest

    come on people

    you should have had a full answer in 4 hours

    drop calories, assess protein requirements to maintain positive nitrogen balance, which of course changes when you are not training

    assess carb requirements to fuel activity

    supplement diet with adequate fat...but you could have done some reading in the 4 hours as its a FAQ

    Thanks for replys.

    cheers steve, I was a little hasty!

    Just sat here itching for a reply as sat here feeling sorry for myself! So general consensus 1 week off without trainning apart from morning fasted cardio wont leed to going catabolic even in a calorie resticted enviroment as long as diet is ok?

    if you are eager, read

    if you dont do weight training and you have your muscle will atrophy
    going catabolic and atrophying are in this case different and the former should not be IMO induced by design

    assess how long your going to be off, read and draw a realistic plan up

    that is not one with the same protein as you were before as your protein turnover is nowhere near the same and of course CHO are protein sparing and far more efficient for all other activities
