Think i might have a small tear in my rotator cuff due to neglecting it during 5 years of lifting. I will be having an MRI soon to find out so fingers crossed its not too serious.
I am wondering if there is anything i can do to maintain as much muscle mass as possible whilst resting and recovering the injured area. I will still do legs (exept squats and deadlifts due to pressure on shoulders) Abs abd Cardio and i was thinking of still working the opposite side with lighter weights. Also maybe taking Creatine as well as iv heard good things about this helping to maintain and obviously keeping a high protein, clean diet.
Anyone been in this position with a rotator cuff or any upper body injury for that matter and managed to maintain a bit of mass?
Any advice is much appreciated
