Least Harmful-Dip/Flat/Incline Bench?


#1

I have mild inflamation of the biceps part of the shoulder. What chest/shoulder exercise is the safest so as to not agravate the injury?

options-dips,flat, incline, decline barbell or dumbell bench


#2

i assume you mean were the biceps originates do decline bench with a barbell i say this cause with dumbells they can be awkward once you finish the set and try to sit up

Are you talking about your bicipital tendon? You will probably have to rest for a while. You should figure out which motions you feel the injury with, and which ones you don't, and go from there. Rest and massage always work for me.
