    To keep this short and sweet as possible, heres a quick overview of my fitness history.

    I'm 22, going on 23. In highschool I competed in weight lifting for class A from ages 15-18. I was 5'7 130 pounds most of the time. Benched 245, Squat 300.

    Right after high school, I hurt myself doing barbell curls. I pushed myself to hard, and my arms were literally "stuck" at a 90 degree angle. That is what having a big ego got me. I'm definately over that now.

    Presently, I'm 5'9 or so, right around 160-165 pounds. I really want to get back into shape. I'm not looking to be a body builder or anything, but just want to have a healthy lifestyle and a good workout plan. Since my injury, I have tried to start working out a few times, but always hurt my biceps again, even though I take it easy on them....so I'm not sure what to do in order to work them out. I have access to all your standard free weight equipment.

    I'm not looking to lose weight....I actually wouldn't mind putting on a few pounds of muscle. I've tried joining a few fitness forums online, but all I ever run into is people that would rather talk about themselves rather than help someone out.

    So all I'm asking for is your opinion on what to do as a basic "getting back on the horse" workout. Dietary advice is also welcome. Thanks for the input in advance yall!

    Thanks for the input. I was away at college when I hurt myself working out. All I had was the "campus doctor" who simply gave me some type of steroid and said, "better not do that anymore."

    I'll look into a physical therapist.Thanks again!

    I've only been lifting for about a year now so I am certainly no expert but my vote would be to get into more of a cross-fit program. Using your own body weight to get yourself in shape by strength training and cardio mix. I have a buddy who plays football and competes on the national level in judo and he does a cross-fit program with a professional about 4 days a week and loves it. If anything that will give you a good mix of strength and bringing down the fat%.
    check out bodybuilding.com for all sorts of workout routines for different needs and abilities. Even if you just hit the weight room 4 days a week and don't push yourself hard just go in there to exercise a few times a week

    Hey man. Idk what part of east tennessee you're in, but theres alot of great hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, kayaking and shit like that down there. I worked in East TN/ West NC for a year and loved it. I hate going to the gym so I just try to stay active when I can.
