I've been lifting weights for about 1.5 years now, nothing too heavy I started with 5 pounders and worked up to 10 pounders just doing everything I can think of while lifting, using various muscles in my arms, back, waist etc, I am defintetely toned and have become fit as a fiddle! Recently, I suffered a pulled muscle in my shoulder from rockclimbing. Talk about painful, hurt like helllllllloooo! Needless to say, I quit my weights until it healed completely, which is now seems to have. Now I and am just starting back up again with my 5 pounders so I am taking it very slow, and so far no pain whatsoever.... Whew...
The past few days I walked superfast on my treadmill on a 4 incline and held the 5 pounders in each hand for 1/2 hr and just pumped my arms for movement. Question is, are my muscles get anything out of going this route? Also, Today, I am up in weight a bit, but I think some water is being surrounding my muscles being it has been awhile since I did this routine, this is normal the day after lifting correct? How much weight can lifting create overnight?
I intend to start to lift everyday for 1/2 hr, just doing everything I can think of with my 5 pounders. I am afraid to jump right into my 10 pounders anytime soon. Just was wondering if the 5 pounders will continue to give me definition that is already there.
I love my muscles and I look like I can kick some serious @ss, but their is always room for more bicep bulk, that is the look I want to go for, anyone give me some pointers? Thanks ~Wendalyn
