I just got back into training after a 2 1/2 year layoff, due to a severe back injury (nerve damage), and I tried to get into my old routine too quickly. My first session went great, but my last 2 sessions were a major set back. I was having trouble lifting weight that I easily lifted only a week earlier. I noticed during my light stretching that my pecs and tri's were very tight, and I even had slight pain(tightness) when I brought the bar down to my chest, with no weight on it. Any thoughts on this, and how do I go about overcoming this. I guess it's been a long time since I had to start out from scratch. Oh yeah, losing 100 pounds on my bench was depressing. Just so you know, legs really aren't an option for me. I am not paralysed, but the damage to my nerves doesn't allow me to do much without major pain. Upper body is just fine though.
