Not working out would help. Anything involving your upper body/torso anyways. Your muscles won't heal properly or efficiently if they are put under a normal workout exertion while healing.
And wukkadb is right. Note Serra's right bicep. Ever wonder why it's alot smaller than his left? He tore it and didn't see a doctor about it, or he did and ignored the doctor's advice.
