can you build up your chest with torn shoulder rotator
I was retired but am now starting job which will require that I build myself up. So I have started lifting weights again for about 3 months now and though since I have farm I keep in shape, I have torn rotator in shoulder so I do not do chest exercises like bench presses. I often have to lift stuff overhead so I have done shoulder exercise but this is also painful. Pulling exercises like rows and pullups are no problem, but is there some way to build up chest without bench presses. I am able to do many pushups without much pain, but they do not seem to build up chest muscle too much. I cannot afford surgery also, and I should also add I am 57 years old so bones do not heal so quickly either. Thank you.
