So today was the first time in a long time that I did bench press, rows, pull downs, dumbbell curls, triceps extensions, wrist curls and reverse wrist curls. Later this, after trash day, I'll work on clearing out some more space so I can do squats and dead-lifts. I did 3 sets of 20 reps each with the lightest weight I could, and extra sets of the wrist curls up to 100 reps.
This is exciting!!! I'll keep trying to walk and if I am going to lift much more regularly I'll probably need to keep on a schedule for massages as well. I'll probably do well to figure out acupuncture and chiropractor schedules as well. Maybe on some rotating quarterly deal.
This is good. I was planning on letting this blog go if I couldn't start to lift again soon. But with being clear of diabetes, liver problems, no growth on my spine or slipped disks it seems very safe to start lifting again. My primary care doc agrees which is great.
