Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I am Dr Uzair.

It is best to wait for at least 6 weeks before you start any kind of exercise. Ribs are involved in breathing, anything that will cause labored breathing or the use of accessory muscles of respiration will inflict pressure on the ribs and can result in fracture recurrence.

Hope this helps.
