I usually do three sets of 16 lifts. Any other advice? Thanks....
I do not recommend alternating heat and ice though... as a Sports Medicine Professional (Certified Athletic Trainer) I would highly recommend Ice rather then heat. Ice dulls the pain, penetrates deeper, increases blood flow better when the rewarming phase in entered thus increasing healing. Heat can increase inflammation making healing take longer and increasing pain.
You probably are lifting with bad form. Can you make an appointment with a Personal Trainer at a gym to learn the correct form?? Or goggle the exercises you are trying to learn the proper mechanics of the motion you are attempting. Hope you fell better ASAP!!

Oh that stinks!! Can you go to an Orthopedist and then to PT?? That's really what you need to help with the pain. The PT will teach you the proper form for lifting.
