Probably: The size and location will determine if it will be a problem. If it is a large one on a small stalk, near a joint, then it may potentially be fractured if it is hit hard enough.

Why am I not getting ripped I do pushups pullups 5 days alternatively, play football but still don't have the results, diet is also good.
Diet and exercise: You must have your body fay content drop to around 5% of your total body weight to get "ripped".

Good workouts are fine to build muscle mass and strength, but it requires great dietary control to achieve this look. ...Read more

This can be as a snack bar, meal-replacement bar, or powder you add to drinks. ...Read more
