    Right arm issue

    For the past few weeks, my right arm has been a mess, thanks to overdoing it on gym machines. I don't want to over-use my arm, but I do want to keep exercising so I can shed some weight. What would you suggest?

    Walking or running and weight-bearing exercises for legs, like squats.

      Do you know if there are any programs that exclude arm exercises?

        Cardio Go is probably a good bet, as it's a substitute program for running. Maybe some HIIT workouts that don't put weight on the arms, like these, for example:

        Tenderfoot
        Walk, Run, Repeat
        Summer Blast
        Over the Rainbow
        Grasshopper
        Power Trim
        100 Seconds

        You could also look through the workouts and set the filter to "lower body" or "abs" and do those that don't overuse the arm.

          YurixTheWanderer ... there's little 'load bearing' for your arms in the Cardio Go Program, but there's a lot of waving your arms about. Does that work for you?

            Having gone through bilateral shoulder rotator cuff tears in the last few years, 2 surgeries that reattached my completely torn infraspinatus and supraspinatus tendons with anchors...repaired my other tendons with sutures, did a subacromial decompression (acromiplasty and a Glenohumeral Debridement....which all means lots of grinding, cutting and re-attaching.... and now slowly building strength back...I would say that what kept me reasonably fit during my ordeal was modifying workouts as needed. I did lots of walking, stair climbing, squats, lunges, calf raises and ab work. I only did the prescribed physio for my arms and shoulders. So I say do what you can but don't risk further injuring your arm. If you do need surgery, get ready for a long recovery and lots of work to get strong again. Best wishes to you on your recovery.
