i used to be able to do weights, but not for years, even injured myself in the PTs office using weights, then they sent me home and said, no weights for you!

so how do i strengthen without weights?

1. theraband exercises

2. gravity exercises

3. isometric exercises

4. ok, 1-2 lb weights for my rotator cuffs

but amazing how just doing exercises against gravity, own body weight and bands can really strengthen things.

i'd maybe start in PT (before insurance runs out) to be trained how to do it properly)?

i have this really good book at home, i'll look at it when i get home and edit this message, its weight training using weights or bands or gravity depending on your situation. so rather than paying for PT, pay for a good book to get started, maybe?
