Damn, that sucks. Oh well there are always specific workout regimes catered to your needs.
I've been pretty pathetic over the past year with my lifting too. The thing is I guess I lost all that weight too soon and thus a bit of my strength too. However I'm feeling like I'm getting back to where I was before as I can probably lift as heavy as most guys in my weight range(150-155 lbs)
