ok so starting feb i'm going to start working out and become like the hulk. I was wondering if 9.5kg dumbells are ok because thats just about what i can lift at the minute with 12 reps

if thats all you can lift then yes, remember add abit more on push it a little

I am starting on that P90X to see how that goes its only 90 days so we'll see
9.5KG is okay. You are a girl, right?
Lol dxx
Mum I told you to stop posting!
What exercises are you doing with the D/bells?
I guess i can lift heavier but for doing 12 reps 9.5-10 is the limit

should I drop the reps and add more weight?

Your comments make me laugh because you don't have a clue what you are talking about, I bet you make the original Mr Muscle look like a heavyweight by comparison.
9.5kg will do you fine until you can do 60-70reps, then upgrade to 15-16kg and start from the beginning.

p90x is very popular and has great feedback. Might look into it

You cant just rely on a dumbbells, you need to get a tricep /bicep bar to target fully
You will also need to build your forearms as you go along and work on your grip, do hammer curls,do negatives aswell a few kilos more than you can lift. This will increase the weights you can pick in a shorter amount of time.

Shergold start at this or even lower.

When I first started I could only curl 10kg and chest press 12kg. Now I can chest press 30kg ones and curl 20kgs. Not massive amounts but you will grow stronger if you train sensible.
Thanks all for the help (_;)
Aye good luck

9.5 is fine for bicep curls but a static weight is pointless - but you'll want dumbbells with weights that you can add to - I'd say a set with up to 20 KG would do you for a while, so you can also dumbbell bench as well. Once you're rattling those out, you could invest in a bar with some more weights and go from there.

THat way you can do a light/warmup set with e.g. 5kg, medium set with e.g. 7kg, then working set of 10kg, rep it out to failure.

Just make sure you get the form right, don't swing etc. Then add weight as you get stronger.

Don't listen to the people calling you a girl, everyone has to start from somewhere.

I personally use Bowflex dumbbells, which are adjustable but very expensive.
I would recommend starting off doing a weight that makes you struggle but not high enough that it puts you off and try to make it a little bit heavier every week.

If you're looking to increasing muscle mass, it's important to do less reps but as high weights as you can handle but it should NEVER be easy.

If you're looking to get ripped, it's best to do a low weight but do as many reps as possible.

Inbox me if you want more advice and I would be happy to help.
FYI, for muscle mass increases - check out Dorian Yates Blood and Guts trainer - some epic vids with some good workouts in there.
