I went to a physio 2 days ago and now cannot lift for 2 weeks while I do rehab excercises.

My shoulder injury caused me to lose a great amount of upper body mass due to months away from heavy pressing. The only respectable body part I have left is my legs, but now taking 2 weeks off is gonna set me back again. This scares me.

What can I do to preserve as much mass as possible in 2 weeks that doesn't involve lifting heavy?

2 weeks isn't significant. Take a 2 week complete break, relax, and start up again light. You'll shoot past where you are now(prior to this setback) in no time provided you train smart and eat right.

If your injured you need to focus on rest. 2 weeks isn't 2 months. Heal up.

Ok guys ill take your advice and do nothing but rehab and relaxation these 2 weeks.

I suppose that at some point everyone needs a break from intense training, especially when injured.

Thank you.
