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.
