• Hello I am 49 years old weigh 130 and I am 5' 2 1/2 inches. I have a set of weights that range from 8ponds to 20 pounds.

    im sure I will be needing more weight. Like a set of 25 and a set of 30 .

    Any women out there that can suggest up to what weight they do. I am doing all my exercises out of the book. Not joining a gym cant afford it.

    Up to what weight do you have????

    Thanks for the feedback Darelyne


  • I have dumbell bars that I add weights to I think it will go up to 30-40#.

    What I do is focus on is making sure that I'm lifting heavy enough weight that the last few reps of each set I'm doing I feel a burn in the muscle I'm working.

    Also focus on making sure I hit my 10's for each exercise.

    As long as you do that you should be okay, the actually amount of weight varies from person to person so as long as you are pushing yourself, feeling the burn, and hitting your 10s, you will see great results!

  • Thanks for the feedback. I need to get a set of 25  30 and 40.

    But yes hitting those 10s is vital and I can feel the need to increase my weight. Thank you
