    You know, you could actually turn lemons into lemonade here. Presumably, you're going to have to start back light and careful. So, you might consider adopting a bodybuilder's mindset. You can increase muscle mass by using lighter weights and really concentrating on the contraction. Enjoy the pump. Strength is a long-term project anyway. It'll come (or return).

    I worked out all of September with my wife's 8 pound dumbbells for various exercises. I just did a ton of reps. Then I took November off to see if that helped my shoulder.

    Can't vouch for your situation, but when I had biceps tendonitis I found that I could row fairly heavy (in the manner I recommended) and that I could bench press almost immediately, albeit with much lighter weight. So, I benched light, rowed heavy, and eventually got back to normal.

    This might help.

    Like I have said previously I have been working around tendonitis since 2000. It comes and goes but its pretty rare that I take full breaks to relieve it anymore. I have done that twice and it goes away but it does inevitably come back same as before.

    That tendonitis doesn't really go away (sometimes I think it's like herpes, just lies dormant), is the reason I've had to settle on a low-volume/low-frequency/high-intensity sort of routine. Small doses are best. Yes, high-frequency/low-intensity training is all the rage today. But for me it's the volume, not the intensity. Right now my sole pressing movement is weighted pushups, once a week.
