Routine Limitations

Just been to the physio and been told that i have strained my lower back and thus i have to lay off all leg and back exercises like squats and deads, as well as standing+seated shoulder press.

I can work chest, biceps, triceps, and shoulders however as well as they are seated.

Thought this could be a chance to focus on my upper body which is lagging behind; i know il be limited by the lack of compounds.

This is what i have come up with thus far;

2-Day Split

Chest + Shoulders

Flat Bench
Incline Bench
Flat Flyes

Seated front raise
Seated lateral raises

Biceps + Triceps

Incline Curls
Hammer Curls

Skullcrushers
Seated Triceps Extension

Or could just do a upper body routine which i could do twice a week.

Im not too sure about this at all to be honest!

FrankieNY i promise business as usual once my back is sorted mate.

    You're in a similar situation to me mate and I'm doing a similar thing to you. I'm using this time to target areas I've not really given much time, i.e. my arms. You'll be able to see what I'm up to on page 3 of my training log.

    Looking at what you're doing training wise I've got a few questions and suggestions.

    Have you been told not to train your lats? Obvioulsy you cant do deads or bentover rows, but what about pulldowns/pulls up and chest supported rowing?

    If you're not doing any rowing movement then you should definately add rear delt raises to what you're already doing or better still take this time to do some rotator cuff exercises as a means of prehab.
