    What can you do with your arms? Are bench and overhead pressing out of the question?
    I unfortunately dont have the equipment to do bench or overheads, and I think even if I did it would be bad for my arms.

    Yes, it does occur whenever I exercise. It eases after a couple days, but its frustrating when it hurts again when I exert it.

    Yeah I was just trying to gauge whether it was more of chronic overuse style injury. Or an acute physical damage style injury.

    If it was a chronic type injury I was going to suggest getting under the bar for as heavy as you could handle for only 1-2 lifts, once or twice a week.It takes alot of rest, but would still give you significant muscle adaptation, this removes the repetitive time stress overload.

    If it was an acute injury (like a torn back muscle) I was going to suggest a "grease the groove" type protocol. Where you do many small light lifts. Do them a few times a day every day of the week. This requires very little rest and recovery with only a very small amount of adaptation each time. But because the amount times per week you do them it builds into a significant amount of muscle adaptation. This removes acute stress overload. (Your back's damage threshold is very reduced in this scenario).

    Hmm thats interesting. I'm not sure whether it's acute or chronic though. It might be acute; if so would you recommend deadlifts or some other exercise with light weights, about 3-5 lbs?
