    Am I doing this right?

    So my right arm is finally fixed, and I started working out yesterday. I'm using my resistance bands, stationary bike, and dumbbells to get back on track. Given that I don't want to mess up my arm again, I decided to do a higher number of reps with lower weights. Currently, I can do 30 reps per exercise (though some are 20).

    So three questions:
    1- Is my plan sound? or should I make changes?
    2- Given that I cycle 30 km/h (or 20 miles per hour) in small bursts (5 km per shot) in between arm exercises, do you think the idea is sound? or should I make changes?
    3- My goal at the moment is getting my body back into workout mode, but I want to lose those pesky extra pounds. What would be good programs to use for this?

    I‘m not experienced enough to talk about workout plans. But I know that some cyclists have problems with their arms. So make sure you don‘t put too much weight on your arms when cycling and change your hand position from time to time..

      Hi! I don't have that much experience either, but it sounds good to me. The bursts of fast biking I would see as HIIT, which, as I seem to recall, is very helpful in boosting metabolism and thereby losing weight.
      Where to go from there? Well, anywhere really. As far as my information goes, both HIIT and strength training are good for weight loss by increasing your energy expenditure e(ven though of course, as the saying goes, weight loss happens in the kitchen). The good (or bad?) news: this barely puts a limitation on the programs you could choose. My advice would be to look at the different program descriptions, see what appeals to you, and then look at a few of the individual days to get an idea. And then just go for it. You can't really go wrong with Darebee.
