Again, thank you everyone. I'm located in the Pittsburgh area...about 20 miles east of the city.

I notice that when I work out, I just don't get that "pumped" feeling in my right side where the brachial plexus goes, even if I were to do a tricep extension with a dumbbell for example, it just doesn't pump....have to wait for it to heal if it does.
Would kettlebells be a good idea? I know the hype says they help somewhat with mobility as well as building/maintaining muscle. I know there are lots of kettlebell workouts out there, it could be something to look into at least.
Someone with kettlebell experience can feel free to correct or confirm.
