If it hurts or is uncomfortable, you are making the right call by stopping. I often see older women lifting weights that seem too heavy for them and they tend to get injured.

What about something like swimming? It's certainly a good way to work out your arm muscles, but you have the support of the water to keep you from hurting yourself. I mostly do backstroke--it is really great for your upper arm and back muscles.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

I would say your best bet would be to contact a physical therapist, who can design a program based on your individual medical needs. It's really tough (and Sparkpeople doesn't allow us to) make recommendations for someone based on their individual medical needs.

I just finished reading "are your weights too light?". I'm 62 and exercise regularly -- cardio and strength. As a 2-time breast cancer survivor with lymph nodes removed, I am unable to continue to increase my weights. I do change my strengthening exercises every few months to mix things up, but what is the best thing I can do for, especially, upper body strengthening without increasing beyond 10# weights?
