About 10 days ago I started feeling a strong pain in my right forearm in certain movements. I consulted the doctor and he said it's presumably a stretched tendon, the expected healing time is up to one month, and that I should avoid exercises that involve forearm stress at this time.
As I mentioned, it's noticeable only in certain movements and in the gym I faced it only in shoulder training. However, I prefer to avoid the risk and follow his orders. My question is which upper body exercises may be considered "not putting stress on the forearm", if it even exists. For example, I thought at first that bench press may fit in when done with moderate weight (10-12RM), but in the end of the concentric part of the move I do stretch the forearm.
Any idea for such exercises?
