Bicep Tear - Rehab

I suffered a partial distal rupture of my left biceps four weeks ago and have been told to keep my arm from weight for at least six weeks after which a slow rehab can be embarked on.

Partial ruptures usually do not require surgery but the downside is that the recovery can take even longer and one must proceed with a lot of caution when starting the rehab.

I train DC style but have only been able to do the leg workouts which means 3 sessions every two weeks and thats just not enough to satisfy my hunger to train and I’m dying to get back into a more frequent rhythm.

I should be able to start rehab in 1-2 weeks time and I wanted to check if anyone on this board went through a similar rehab and could give some pointers as how a rehab program should be designed.
