My recent shoulder injuries have left me unable to workout my upper body, but everything else works, so today I added weights to my lower body workout (otherwise riding a stationary bike). My physical therapist told me that when I do start the upper body I'll be using lighter weights and doing more reps. Since the good parts have to tag along with the injured parts (or vise versa), I decided to intiate that program with my legs, but am not sure my formula is quite right.

I typically would do 3 sets of 10 (30 reps) with my normal weight, but switched to 4 sets of 15 (60 reps) with 1/2 the weight; when I left the gym I didn't feel like I had done much. I'm interested in other suggestions as to whether I should add weight, reps, or both; and what's worked for others in this situation.
