Weight Lifting with RA
still new to this but thought I would ask for anyone else’s experience with weight lifting and RA
Last year I was in incredible shape due to training & diet that involved a lot of weight lifting and I loved it.
having a very active job on my feet for 12 hours a day, when I returned to work after the first lockdown, this mixed with my training was when I began having issues.
since struggling with extreme pain mainly in my hands and wrists (however I also have in my elbows, knees and ankles) I have avoided heavy weights and have only done short, light exercises at home.
has anyone here been into heavy weight training or is there any information about doing this with RA?
all info is much appreciated xx
