Ok, I'm posting this to help a friend because I'm not sure how to proceed here. I'll try keep it brief.
Friend in question does not have the full use of his arm due to some half-wit quack fucking it up when he was a baby. I think he actually has titanium in there too.
My friend cannot straighten his arm, he cannot lift it overhead.
He has now decided to start working out, and to his credit he's a strong guy. I've seen him deadlift over 225lbs for five plus reps when he first tried it. Problem being the bar was at a slant due to the shoulder/arm issue.
Its part injury, part him not using the thing properly for 20 something years.
I'm all for him working out and becoming awesome and he's asked for my help and wants to train with me but I have no idea how to help him with this.
I realise this is something that is going to have to be sorted out by just getting stuck in and finding stuff out as you come to it.
But, have you guys got any suggestions? Pointers? Whatever. Open range, fire away. Please anything appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
