Hi, a little background information about me. I'm 5"7 and 160lbs. I would say my body fat is around 14%. I had surgery for my left arm, broken humerus spiral fracture in Oct 2010.
I will admit that before I broke my arm, I didn't know much about body building. I was training 4 days a week working out only chest, bi, tri, and shoulders , neglecting the important back and legs. I didn't know anything about dieting either and my body fat was around 18%. I would say that all the free time I had after my surgery used to read up about bodybuilding made my broken arm a blessing in disguise.
Anyway, it has been about 8mths after my surgery and I have started working out in the gym again since April 2011. I can't lift as much as last time. I found that I became so weak. my bench fell from 80kgs to 40kgs. Everything dropped about 50%.
I'm quite lost now, I can't lift heavy as my arm hurts. So do you guys think I should stick to light weights? Or try to push heavy?
I only see myself getting leaner. I don't see myself getting bigger. I'm trying to go for lean gains.
