Ppl, I'm just not that impressed with these professional athletes.
For one, I work a desk job but still, I don't let my body waste away.
Not too long ago, I had a problem with my right elbow. That problem is now gone.
So fine, during rehabilitation, it meant that my right tricep/bicep combo with be weak for a bit. Did I sit around and do squat? No, I used a forearm device and exercised my forearm & wrist muscles/tendons. http://curamotionusa.com/proddetail.php?prod=PT-10000
For my shoulder, I restricted my elbow (so that it wouldn't move) and did deltoid exercises, tying a pulley cable to my arm with a strap.
All and all, my elbow healed, while all the supporting muscles in its vicinity were toned up.
