Weight Training

Two weeks ago I started doing my old weight training workout. Sadly my right hand has still not healed from the time I fell on it playing football over three or four months ago, a fact that I found out when I tried to lift my old weight of 140lbs and almost fainted from the pain shooting up my right arm.

I thought that the best thing to do would be to start up from scratch and slowly build up to my original weight of 140lbs, this would then let my right hand get stronger and possibly stop me from injuring it further.

So I started at lifting 10lbs and did the following every evening:

20 Barbell curls (Repeat 5 times)
10 Sit-ups (Repeat 5 times)

Yesterday I decided to up the weight a bit as my hand was not hurting from lifting 10lbs, so I added another 10lbs to it and I am now lifting 20lbs. I will keep this for the next two weeks and then see about increasing the weight again. I also decided to add bench presses to my little workout, it is my idea to add a new one every two weeks.

So my new workout is now:

20 Barbell curls (Repeat 5 times)
15 Sit-ups (Repeat 5 times)
20 Bench presses (Repeat 5 times)
