Adjusting the Weights





There has been an increase in the weights that I lift in the mornings.


Previously, the sets were done with 5, 8, and 10 pound weights.


The fives were way too easy and the tens were doable without overdoing it.


I have some adjustable ones, and I fixed them up with what I had available.


The sets are now done with 8, 11, and 14 pounders.


The first two are not much of a change and I can handle the whole sets of reps.


But the last set of reps with the 14 pounders are going to take some building up too.


Some of the lifts I can do the whole set of eight.


But some of them, especially the ones extended from the body, I am lucky to get even five or six reps before I have to move on to different lifts.


From what I have been reading though, if it is too easy to do them, then they need to be increased.


Well, it should burn more calories when I use those heavy one, bu it is going to take some time to get to where i need to bee.


But that is a good thing - it's making the muscles work and I haven't felt any soreness from the increase.
