I just recently took up lifting again after stopping for about 15 years- I gave it up after college due to jobs, family, and other things that took up a lot of time.
Anyhow, I have a bit of a concern, I know my muscles aren't going to heal as fast as they did when I was 20, I'm pretty sore all over from working different muscle groups over the last few days, but my right arm is my biggest concern. I worked on preacher curls the other night, and now my right arm is so sore that I cannot straigten it on its own, I have to brace the hand against something solid and actually stretch it straight. Once its straightened, I can use it ok until it stiffens up again a few minutes later. My left arm is nearly as sore, but I can straighten that one without stretching.
Did I wreck something, or is this just teething pains of starting a weight program?
At any rate I'll stick around here as it looks like an interesting site and I have a lot to learn and relearn.
