In a similar situation - any suggestions for how to prevent losing (upper body) muscle mass when injured? Had surgery for my shoulder dislocation recently, won't be able to do proper bench/dips/arm raises for the next couple months at least. Probably shouldn't be doing rows, curls, etc for a while either.
Was at a good place physically, but since I've had to stop lifting in the last month I've seen significant muscle atrophy already.
Have begun doing Tabata intervals on a stationary bike a few times a week.
Goals are just to prevent atrophy and to stay in shape/keep the BF low.
Would love some input - thoughts?
