I am a 46 year old who has been weight training/cardio training for more than 20 years. Saw a specialist yesterday who advised that my elbow which I cant extend fully and is very rigid and restricted in movement, is arthritic. He has suggested that while physio might help, little can be done. I experience pain while benchpressing and when doing bicep curls so would welcome any advice or guidance re the following.
Which chest exercises would be best as an alternative to benching - (current max - 240-260) I use a pec dec to finish my current chest workout.
Which exercise/s will enable me to work my arms fully - when raising arm it wont flex beyond 120 degrees
Can anyone recommend an elbow support which might help?
I would appreciate it if those of the opinion that I should ‘retire gracefully’ would keep those opinions to themselves.
Many Thanks in anticipation.
