Default previous blood clot and exercise

Hey,

I had a lady contact me the other day about participating in one of our boot camp programs, she said she previously had a blood clot in her shoulder and her doctor told her to never do pushups or other forms of arm (stengthening) exercises, to prevent another clot occuring.

The blood clot came on previously when she reached her arm over her head to put mousturiser on her back, as far as i'm aware the clot just went away naturally.

I'm thinking she should get a second opinion on this as it seems silly that she will be doing daily arm movements, but then can't exercise on it. I don't know what brought on the blood clot, i'm presuming maybe bad circulation or something?

Any thoughts would be appreciated!
