TL;DR I dislocated my left shoulder a month ago and it is slowly healing. Which exercises are safe to build my abs, chest and back?
I have dislocated my left shoulder a month ago. It is no longer throbbing with pain or causing numbness in my left arm. I can sideways open it up for 90 degrees and continue my daily routine with ease. However, it is not completely healed yet.
Meanwhile, I have a large belly I am trying to get rid of. In the last two months I lost 5.5 kg (from 70.8 kg to 65.3 kg). Since I am 171/m, I do not wish to lose any more weight but get rid of the belly fat.
Due to my condition, the exercise I currently do are
- Wall sits
- Leg raises (one at a time, double leg raises causes slight pain in my shoulder)
- Crunches (with my hands on my chest, not around ears)
I do the last two exercises on a relatively soft bed, however, I plan to move to an exercise mat.
As I said my primary ambition is to get rid of belly fat and secondary one is to build up my biceps, shoulders, abs, chest and back. 2 kg biceps curls with a water bottle do not really hurt, but I only do one or two to check if it hurts. Besides, I used to do 7 kg curls the last time I exercised, so 2-3 kg curls would probably mean nothing.
Biceps and shoulders before completely healing my shoulder might be hopeless, but what can I do to develop my abs, chest and back?
