Injury NSV!!

I started working with Kettlebells back in Feb...had already been lifting weights again since Dec. I have a torn rotator cuff on the left and just have not been able to up my weights on that side at all. UNTIL YESTERDAY!!

I"ve been doing Kettlebell punches in my routine and have gotten myself up to a 12 pounder on my right with the punches but couldnt get past 8 on the torn cuff....Yesterday I did 10 lb punches with it!!!

So exited to move forward! :smile:

    Best of luck, hope it gets better.

    I just started trying the Kettle bell in one exercise, and so far can only do 10 increments.

    I swim the breast stroke to keep my torn rotator going.
