Training Around Injury


#1

I have wrist and elbow injuries that both require surgery. I can't do any pressing or pulling. I'm putting together a spreadhseet of exercises so I can use ways to train my upper body around it before and after the surgery. I can think of hise shrugs, maybe one of those lateral raise machines, but I'm just not able to come up with anything. Can anyone throw some exercies out there please?


#2

no pushing or pulling=no upper body exercise. good luck w/ the surgery.


#3

Yeah, I have had an elbow injury for the past 10 months now. After PT has failed, I'm starting to lean towards the surgical route. There's not really a way to work around an elbow injury that prevents pushing or pulling.
