Recovering from tendonitis...

I haven't worked on the bench in about... Lets say 8-9 months, due to tendonitis in my right elbow. Before it "Boom bitched" on me, I was doing roughly 245ish on the bench, but I have a feeling that i could barely get 150 up right now.. What would be a good lightweight workout on the bench to get back in the swing of things? I'd really rather do high rep light weight work if possible, seeing as my funds are limited and I have a bench at home with weights up to 180lbs. Can't quite afford the gym yet. < broke partime 18 year old.

All that I know is recovery is VERY slow most of the time. I have a friend that had tendonitis in his hands and could barely grip anything for a year. He had problems holding a heavy cup. He is doing better now and is still doing therapy type exercises (and probably will be for years to come )

hope your recovery is fast

Well, i don't have to have physical therapy on my elbow anymore... I've just lost maybe.. 10-12% of my range of motion, I can no longer fully extend it. But with working out, it should eventually come back. Which is a big part of why i want to work out. That and the fact that fat=no chicks, buff=gettin laid... lol j/k
