Posted 21st Jan 2012
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

    9.5kg will do you fine until you can do 60-70reps, then upgrade to 15-16kg and start from the beginning.

    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.

    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.
  19. DragonChris's avatar
    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.

    Aye, that'll be me then

    When you do your sets, if you are wanting to bulk up rather than tone, its worth doing a set of 10 at a comfortable weight, then a set of 8 at a higher weight, then a set of 6 at a weight you can just about manage. Do this for each exercise.
    So in your example I would suggest 1st set 10kgs, 2nd set 12kgs, then 3rd set 14kgs. You will find that you are able to increase the weights quite rapidly over the weeks/months.

    Ha ha, I'm thinking of one particular instance though and it was an old woman that put the weight up. She looked like something from driving miss daisy but was lifting 40kg or something. It was lifting using stomach muscles though. Forget the name of that particular apparatus.
