Back to Hitting the Iron

  1. I spoke with my specialist the other day. He told me that it was ok for me to resume weight lifting.

    For a brief recap of my injury, I developed a tear in my medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow). I asked him about the inflamation that I have and he informed me that I was going to have that for awhile due to the scar tissue that formed. He advised me to start it out light and let pain be my guide.

    So here is my idea. (stole most of it from someone's advise on here...thanks for the advise):

    I took all of my maxes and cut them in half. Start out doing each exercise 1 set for 15 reps. I think that if I try to do a full work out at this point it will cause too much swelling and pain. So I started by taking 2 exercises (bench press and seated rows) and I will slowly start adding more exercises as my arm holds up. I am going to continue doing my forearm rehab (wrist curl, reverse wrist curl, and pronation movements). And of course I'm going to continue to ice after workouts.

    Anyone have any more advise please feel free to share. Thanks.

    After 4 months....it feels good to be back
